Corn on the cob in a coconut gravy

Corn on the cob in a coconut gravy

This dish transports me back to Mombasa,肯尼亚,被称为Makai Paka,翻译成椰子肉汁里玉米棒子上的玉米。

It is relatively simple to prepare you just need to allow cooking time of around two hours for all the flavours to intensify.

Trust me…it is so worth the wait!!

What you need is:

  • Corn on the cob cut into chunks as per below

  • A tin of coconut milk
  • 绿色辣椒x 2或更多,取决于您想要的辣度
  • Coriander
  • One lemon
  • Half a teaspoon of turmeric
  • 一茶匙盐
  • A teaspoon of dhana jeeru powder (Coriander and Cumin powder)
  • 3 garlic cloves smashed up
  • 姜(大约一茶匙)


In a large pan boil some water (around 2/3 full) and add the chunks of corn on the cob to the pan.

Boil this for around 40 mins.

与此同时,in a blender mix the coconut milk,ginger,garlic,turmeric,salt,dhana jeeru,coriander and green chillies and a dash of lemon.


Add this mixture to your simmering pan with the corn on the cobs and lower the heat to medium and leave this to cook.

After an hour and a half or so add a little more lemon and seasoning.You will know when it is ready when the gravy has thickened slightly.Take off heat and enjoy!!

This is best served with rice.
