This recipe is very healthy and obviously very yummy. Goodness of spinach and crunch of corn is what make this dish very unique and nutritious. I love the color combination (green and yellow). Do try this recipe- its too good.

In pan heat oil, add hing, jeera and after 15-20 seconds add onion paste. Keep stirring till it turns light golden.
Add in it tomato paste and cook till oil separates, add turmeric powder and cook for a while and turn off the burner.
