Spinach Baby Corn curry

Bright green Spinach with crispy baby corn.....I remember having the yummy Spinach corn sandwich at Cafe Coffee day and decided to give a twist to our traditional Palak Paneer.

Ingredients:

1 Bunch Spinach
1 cup Baby Corn - cut into peices and lightly steamed
1 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup Onion finely chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 Green chillies
1 tbsp Chilly Powder
1 tbsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tbsp Cumin Powder
1/2 tbsp Garam masala
1 tsp Jeera or cumin seeds
2 tbsp Oil
A piece of Lime
Salt to taste

Wash the spinach leaves and blanch i.e. put the Spinach leaves in boiling water for 2 mins and run it through cold water. This will retain the bright green colour of spinach.
Make a puree of the Spinach and green chillies.
Steam the Babycorn lightly, make sure that the crunch is retained.
Heat oil in a pan. Put in the cumin seeds. Saute the garlic.
Now add the onions. Add little salt, this will make the onions water and the onions will cook fast.
Put the Tomato puree and saute till the rawness has gone.
Now, add in the Spinach puree and steamed baby corn.
Sprinkle Coriander Powder, Garam Masala, Cumin Powder and Chilly powder.
Let everything blend well and cook nicely.
Finally, add salt and finish off with a dash of lime.
Relish this with hot Rotis or Parathas!!!
