Palak Makai Ki Sabzi | Spinach Corn Curry

Popeye was definitely on to something. Spinach is a super food loaded with tons of nutrients in a low calorie package. Dark, leafy greens like spinach are important for skin, hair, and bone health. They also provide protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals.

Palak Corn curry is another variation of palak paneer, just replace the paneer with corn. Spinach and corn both are highly nutritious ingredients which most of time I used in making sandwiches, rice, pastas and many more dishes. Sweetness of corn enhances the taste of spinach gravy, because leafy vegetables are slightly bland in taste. 

To prepare this gravy just cook the spinach puree with onion-tomato paste and garnish with corn and cream. Addition of curd mariation takes the gravy into another level just like Punjabi Sarso Ka Saag. You can serve this Palak Makai or Palak Corn Curry with Naan, Lacchaa Parathas or rice.

The possible health benefits of consuming spinach include improving blood glucose control in people with diabetes, lowering the risk of cancer, reducing blood pressure, improving bone health, lowering the risk of developing asthma, and more.
