Bell Pepper & Babycorn Stir Fry - glazed with honey

This is one of the recipes which is quick to prepare and delicious as well.  I had seen this preparation on a Kannada TV channel sometime ago…may be 2 years ago and I don’t even remember if I ever prepared it, though I had taken note of the recipe.  The original recipe actually called for Paneer , baby corn and capsicum, but  I only had the baby corn and red/yellow pepper that busy morning, where I had no way of getting paneer from the store. So, I gave paneer a miss and was delighted that It turned out quite delicious and never missed paneer in it.  The aroma of freshly ground spices at home truly enhanced the flavour.  

These days, I prefer to grind / powder the spices at home than buying them from the stores, since there is a lot of food adulteration going on and you never know what goes behind those powdered stuff.  The taste of the readymade stuff can never match the authentic produce.  It is very sad to see, to what extent people go just to make extra money, no matter how it affects other people’s lives and their health.  In the recent past, the media is trying to bust all kind of scams that are going on around us.  Inducing drinking water with harmful chemicals to soften the hardness and taste,  creating fake milk, butter, ghee etc.,  colouring and injecting veggies/fruits with harmful chemicals to retain its colour and size, injecting chemicals to poultry etc., to develop their muscles which are hard to digest from human body is to name a few. The list goes on. Please check out this link Kitchen Tricks  where you will find some useful information to check the level of food adulteration in your own kitchen.    

Sometimes I keep wondering, it is better to settle in a village and cultivate a farm of our own and get fresh and unadulterated produce!! Yeah…it seems so easy to talk but it, but when it comes to practicing it, our mind goes numb, just to imagine leaving all the comforts that the city life can offer which our bodies get adjusted to!! 

Yeah, I will bury my farming aspirations for now and present you the picture and recipe of the delicious dish below!

BabyCorn & Pepper/ Capsicum Honey Stir Fry
Total Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Serves: 4


300 grams Baby corn
1 Red Pepper/Capsicum
1 Yellow/Green Pepper/Capsicum
1 Big Onion
1 Big Tomato
½ teaspoon ginger garlic paste (optional)
1 teaspoon Jeera
1 teaspoon Black pepper
4 Red chillies
2-3 tablespoon Honey
1 tablespoon oil/ If you are health conscious use Olive oil
Salt to taste


Clean and Chop baby corn , capsicum, onion and tomato into 1 ½ inch strips and keep them separately.  Slightly roast Jeera, black pepper and red chilies on a pan and grind them into a coarse powder.  Heat a large frying pan and add oil, onions and sauté till translucent. Add chopped baby corn and stir fry for 2 minutes.  Add chopped capsicum and salt, sauté for a minute.  Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for few seconds and add tomatoes immediately to avoid burning the bottom.  Add the ground powder and mix well and simmer for 1 minute.  Take off the stove and glaze it with honey and serve with rice or roti.

P.S. Don’t overcook the veggies if you want them crunchy and to retain high nutrition level. J

Some drool worthy food is always good for the tummy!! What say!

Till the next one comes up, Share the good taste and stay healthy!

Points to Ponder:

"It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory. He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls."

Proverbs 25: 27-28
