Juicy sweet corns kernels cooked in silky, smooth and flavorsome spinach gravy makes delectable main course gravy called corn palak.

Palak Corn Recipe – Ingredients for corn palak

Although the name makes you believe that the dish could call for a couple of ingredients, this palak corn recipe calls for more than just a couple! Let’s have a look:

Onions-Tomatoes: Chopped onions and homemade tomato puree has been used. You can also use chopped tomatoes. Onions are used in a good quantity and the quantity should not be cut down.

Flavorings: Ginger, garlic and green chilies in the form of paste have been used. Again you can use chopped instead of paste form. We will be grinding the gravy once it is ready. Therefore paste or chopped form will not make any difference in the final gravy. Minced garlic is used to temper the prepared palak gravy for that extra kick.

Spices: A lot of spices have been used. Cloves are used while grinding the blanched spinach, mace is used in the tempering and a number of powdered spices are used during the gravy preparations and dried fenugreek leaves are added for garnishing.

Ghee, butter, and cream: The gravy is prepared in ghee or clarified butter. You can use oil instead of ghee but I believe ghee gives a much better taste to the spinach gravy. Butter and cream are added while finishing the gravy recipe.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
