Corn Spinach Veggie (Palak Makai ki Sabzi)

Hi All,
      Palak (spinach) rich in iron and calcium and specially good for growing kids.
There is famous cartoon character Popeye, who eats spinach and becomes physically strong. So what are you waiting for ?? Make sure you serve spinach once in a week to your kids.

You can make several dishes from spinach like palak paneer (spinach and cottage cheese gravy), palak puri, palak aloo (spinach gravy with potato) etc etc.
Today's recipe I tried from one of my favourite cook Nita Mehta's cookbook ....Low Calorie cooking for the Indian Kitchen.
She is an amazing cook. Ingredients she uses are easily available in the stores. 

So sharing her finger liking good recipe with you all :)

2 bunches of spinach (palak)
1 cup sweet corn (frozen)
2 onions (finely sliced)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1" stick cinnamon (dalchini) (roughly crushed)
2 big cardamoms (roughly crushed)
2 cloves (roughly crushed)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
Salt taste
2 tbsp oil
Garnish: ginger julienne


  • Discard spinach stem and wash it under running water thoroughly.
  • Keep it aside till its fully dry, chop the spinach.
  • Now heat oil in a non-stick karahi. Add crushed cloves, cinnamon and big cardamom.
  • Add onions and saute till they become golden brown in colour.

  • Now add ginger-garlic paste and mix nicely.

  • Add all the dry masalas and mix it.
  • Add corns and cook covered for 5-6 mins. Keep stirring in between.

  • Add chopped spinach and mix well. Cover the karahi with a lid and cook spinach on low flame till it is well blended with the corn and gets fully dry.

  • Add chopped tomatoes and cook for another 4-5 mins.

  • Remove from fire.
  • Garnish with ginger julienne and serve hot with chapattis.
  • Enjoy.

Sending this to:

      Merry Tummy

@ Guru, hardik doesnt like any veggie but I hide them in a spoon of curd.
So while having curd he takes veggies too ;)
