Corn Capsicum Curry

Adapted From :

There are some days , when the usual fare looses it's sheen, & you want to get over with the humdrum of preparing the meal with as little fuss as possible using the odd capsicum lying in some corner of the fridge with the remainder of the frozen corn beckoning it's turn from the freezer. It was one such day Shilpa's recipe , which I had book marked earlier , came to my aid.
It is a very simple , straight forward , tangy , bright colored dish , which uses fresh spices in lieu of store brought Garam Masala. Gets done very quickly & the results are promising!
A sure shot mood - enhancer !

Corn - 1 cup, cooked
Capsicum - 1 cup, diced into big chunks
Onion - 1/2 cup, diced

Saute & grind-
Cloves - 1
Cinnamon - 1 '' stick
Coriander Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Red chilly- 6 No.s

Lemon juice- 1/2 tbsp

Method -
