1. Palak (Spinach) Corn Curry

Spinach corn curry recipe is almost similar to that of palak paneer curry (spinach cottage cheese curry), with few small changes here and there. It's yet another beautiful way of eating spinach which is loaded with nutrients. I have cooked this recipe today for lunch to go with phulkas, though I just love to have it with butter naan ?? .  So this is how I make it: Blanch and puree spinach leaves, keep it aside. Heat oil in a kadai, add cumin seeds,bay leaf and clove to it. Add pureed onions to this and saute till golden. Add ginger garlic paste and cook till raw smell goes away. Now, add tomato puree and saute on medium flame till oil releases from sides of paste. Add spinach puree, some salt and cook till all the water is almost evaporated. Add on the spices like red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and mix well. Cook for another minute. Pour some water to get desired gravy consistency and bring it to boil. Add boiled sweet corn kernels and let it simmer on low flame for a min followed by addition of cream. Mix well and serve ?? . . #cookwitharchi #cwainsta #cwa2017 #cwafoodworld #igers #hydbloggers #foodphotography #indianfood #indianfoodbloggers #foodiesofinstagram #recipeupdates #foodtalkindia #food52grams #indianphotographers #foodphotos #foodlove #foodstyling #foodblogger #foodgeek #youarewhatyoueat #spinach #spinachrecipes #spinachcorncurry #curryrecipes #spinachcurry #healthyrecipes #feedfeed #northindianrecipes #foodlove #healthy #palakcorncurry
