Palak Corn | Spinach Corn Gravy

Palak Corn is a healthy and a nutritious recipe. It is technically a variation of Palak Paneer, we switch Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) with Sweet Corn. It tastes equally good as the combination of Spinach and Sweet Corn is heavenly. I have added a little bit of curd (plain yogurt) to it and it was simply great, though it is totally optional. I skipped the cream from this recipe, you can add 2 tbsp if desired.

Also try: Palak Paneer, Palak Khichdi or Palak Paneer Bhurji.
