spinach corn curry, palak corn recipe

palak corn recipe – spinach and sweet corn is one of my favorite combination. the sweetness of the corn goes very well with the slight bland taste of spinach or palak…

i always end up adding these two in pasta, rice and in veggie bakes. this palak corn curry is a variation of the palak paneer, but more creamy as i have added ground melon seeds and cashews in the curry. there is also low fat cream in the recipe. you can skip the cream if you prefer.

the end result is a lightly spiced, smooth, creamy and nutritious curry. the recipe can also be made for kids who are usually not fond of spinach. instead of sweet corn, regular corn or even fresh green peas can be added.

this palak corn curry goes very well with with naan, rotis or jeera rice.

if you like both spinach and corn, then there is already another recipe on the blog – corn spinach.
