Baby corn is mildly sweet and has a satisfying snap to it. The little guys, usually only a few inches long, are commonly used in Asian cuisine, including stir fries, curries and noodle dishes. If a dish lacks texture, baby corn provides a pleasant crunch without an overpowering flavor.
Baby corn has been touted as one of the healthiest veggies you can add to your stir fries and salads. In fact, for those trying to lose weight baby corn may just prove to be a better bet, because of its relatively lesser starch content.
