SWEET CORN SPINACH GRAVY/HAPPY SANKRANTI

veg gravy recipes
It is a wonderful gravy which is a best combination for flat breads like roti/poori or pulkas..



WISH YOU ALL HAPPY MAKARA SANKRANTI FRIENDS.....

The sad part  of here is we don`t have many leafy veggies except spinach n amranthus leaves...And those two also can find in some particular season of the year..Whenever i found spinach never miss to buy..Instead of simple stir fry decided to cook some gravy and searched out in web.....So,Finally i got this recipe from  a news paper and the ings are super simple... It`s reall dead easy to make and tastes good too......It goes well in the parties also....So,Next time when you buy spinach just remember this and give  a try..i tried it and i served this with rice n rotis too...

PREPARATION TIME-15 minutes
COOKING TIME-20 minutes
SERVES-3-4

Ingredients

spinach/palakura-2 small bunches
sweet corn-1 cup (i used canned/tin)
moong dal/pesara pappu-3 tbsps
green chili-3
onion-1 small
ginger garlic paste/GGP-1 tsp
fresh cream-1/4 cup
garam masala-1/2 tsp
cloves- 5
cardamoms-3
red chilli powder-1 tsp
salt-to taste
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
oil-2 tbsps

METHOD

Chop onion and spinach finely.Drain sweet corn ...Keep these aside.....

Pressure cook the dal,spinach,cloves,cardamoms,turmeric,onion,green chilli n ginger garlic paste.

After 10 minutes or 3 whistles off flame n wait til it release air.....

Mash spinach dal lightly and heat a kadai with oil.....

Add in mashed Spinach+dal,sweet corn,chilli powder,salt and garam masala.Cook this for 3 minutes..

Now add cream and off flame after 2 minutes..

MY NOTES

Use less chilli powder if you want...

Adding cream is the important pat of this gravy....

Can skip the garlic if you don`t like.....

I used canned sweet corn.Try with fresh corns if you like.

Finally this tastes best with rotis....
