Spinach and Sweet Corn make a good combination because of the light bitterness of the Spinach contrasting with the sweetness of the Corn. This dish is a dry dish. We can serve it with Roti and Rice. We can also make a roll with this dish to pack in the tiffin box.
Cleaned and chopped Palak (Spinach) – 2 cups
Fresh or Frozen Sweet Corn – ½ cup (Parboiled)
Oil – 2 tbsp
Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
Finely Chopped Onion – ¼ cup
Red Chillies – 2 (chopped)
Garlic – 4 pods (crushed)
Red Chilli Flakes – ½ tsp
Roasted Sesame – 1 tbsp
Bread Crumbs – 3 tbsp
Salt – to suit one’s taste
Heat the Oil in a pan. Crackle Cumin Seeds. Add Onions, Green Chillies, and Garlic. Stir cook. When the Onion turns pink, add the Palak and cook for 5 to 6 minutes till the Palak is done. Add the parboiled Sweet Corns, Salt and the Red Chilli Flakes. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the Bread Crumbs and the Sesame. Stir for few seconds.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve with Roti, Rice etc.
While cooking any Green Vegetable, add the Salt only when the vegetables are cooked well. The volume of the green vegetable will reduce while cooking; it is easy to assume how much Salt is required at that stage.
