36 PALAK WITH CORN

Palak(Spinach) with corn and a break for few days.


Recently have not been very active in my blog. Reason being that I am leaving to India on vacation for 2 months after a gap of 3 years. I know it is very long.
Definitely Won't be a complete break for my blog, but a break until this month end. Will come up with many more interesting dishes and keep posting them now and then. Until then keep visiting and leave your valuable comments which I very much need. That is what makes me to post more and more :D


Had this post from a very long time in my drafts. So thought of posting it. This tasted great with parathas/chapathi's. Can also make this when have a very small qty of spinach leaves. Have already made spinach with channa and potato, this time added corn which gave a very good taste and also was a excellent combo.


Spinach/palak leaves - 1 big bunch( cleaned and washed)
Corn(sweet corn) - 3/4 cup( partially cooked/steamed)
Onion - 1 chopped fine
Tomato paste - 1 tbsp
Ginger and garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Cream - 2 tbsp(optional)or also can use yogurt
Salt as needed
Oil - 2 tbsp
Spices( very few of each cumin seeds, clove, cinnamon, cardamom) - adding all these to get goo flavor which you can always skip

Heat water (around 2 cups)
in a vessel and allow it to boil. Add spinach leaves and allow it to cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Remove and cool. Later grind to a fine paste.


Heat oil in a pan and add the spices first. Next add onion and saute till they are golden brown. Then add ginger and garlic paste and saute for a minute and add tomato paste. Fry for less than a minute. Now add all the powders and mix well. Next add the spinach paste along with the cooked/steamed corn. Also add salt and reduce flame and cook for another 5 - 6 minutes. Add cream for thickness and creamy taste. Serve with your favourite chapathi/parathas/rotis and enjoy.
