Cut the baby corn into thin rounds carefully so that they do not break. Keep it aside. You can also cut as long thin strips.
Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot enough, splutter mustard seeds. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, curry leaves and let them sizzle.
Add onion, chopped green chillies, ginger garlic paste and fry till onion becomes light brownish in color and the raw smell of ginger garlic goes off.
Add partially cooked baby corn pieces, salt, pepper powder and mix well. Sprinkle little water, cover, and cook for another 3 minutes. Keep stirring in between to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan. Drizzle little oil if needed.
Finally, add lemon juice, mix well and turn off the flame.
