Spinach Corn Curry/ Palak Corn Subzi-Version I

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.

1 bunch spinach (palak)
1 cup corn kernels (can use frozen sweet corn too)
1 large onion
1 large tomato
Green chillies to taste
1/2 inch piece ginger 
1/2 tea spoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1/4 tea spoon turmeric powder (haldi)
2 whole red chillies dried
Asafoetida (Hing) a pinch
Salt to taste
2 tbsp oil

Clean and blanch/boil palak. Keep aside to cool. Also boil corn kernels with a little salt and keep aside.
Grind onion with green chillies and ginger. Than grind tomato separately.
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.
Add boiled palak to a blender, to it add the onion tomato mixture and blend well till smooth.
In a pan again heat a tea spoon of oil, break and add whole red chillies and follow it up with the blended palak. Cook the mixture for 10-15 minutes on medium to low flame stirring occasionally.
Add boiled corns to it and let it cook for 5 more minutes.  The consistency should be such that you can serve it in the plate only.

Serve hot with bread or rice.
