Important Note

I grated sweet corn cobs in this recipe. The pulp had less fiber and was smooth.

Alternatively, you can grind the corn kernels to get the pulp. But, the pulp you get by this method will not be as smooth as the one you get by grating the corncob.

Hence, the curry made by grating the corn cob is smoother than the curry made by grinding the kernels.
