Critical Ingredients

The corn, of course. I like the flavour of green chilies, but you can use a fresh red chili or a jalapeno chili if you like. Cumin and fresh coriander give the curry flavor, along with the coconut milk. You can substitute ginger for garlic and still have a great curry. If you leave the turmeric out, you still have nice flavour and a greener curry. Use more fresh coriander to give the curry color if omitting turmeric.
