  4. Heat butter in the same pan.
  5. Add the jeera, blended makhani paste and stir well.
  6. Add chilli powder. (If you want rich color, you can add kashmiri chilli powder. I used normal one)
  7. Stir well &sauté the masala on a medium flame till the butter ooze out. It has to be sautéed really well till butter ooze out.
  8. Add washed baby corn, methi leaves, chilli powder,cream,water and boil for ten minutes.
  9. Switch off the flame. Garnish with coriander, ginger and cream.
Notes
1. You can use julienne ginger to garnish as well.
2. Close the lid when you add baby corn and water at the end as it will splash out some gravy outside as it boils.
3. You can also fry baby corn in butter/oil before you add them.
