Saute cubed onions with a pinch of salt and little oil until golden brown, saute capsicum in the same manner as onions, but make sure it doesn't change colour. It should be crisp and half cooked.

Tasty Baby Corn & Capsicum Gravy is ready to be served with hot roti's and Phulkas. you can serve it along with any variety rice too, like jeera pulav, or vegetable pulav.
I have used different colored capsicum, you can use any one of it too..
I have added tandoori masala to get a nice colour for the gravy, its optional, if you dont have just skip adding it.
Instead of capsicum , boiled and fried potatoes and cauliflower can be added.
Instead of half cup tomato puree , you can grind 2 Big Tomatoes to a fine paste.
Cream can also be added for that rich taste.
