It can be had plain or can also be stuffed in sandwiches or wraps. We just had the dish plain with a side vegetable soup and toasted bread.

Best is to use fresh sweet corn as it goes very well with spinach. The combo of corn and spinach is too good and one which most people like.

  • Mix the corn with spinach and spices. Saute for 2-3 minutes more. Check the salt and seasonings and add more if required. Serve hot with warm or toasted bread.

Notes

  • You can use tinned/canned corn instead of fresh corn. I have used american sweet corn but even regular corn would taste good.
  • You could also use cream and cheese together in this recipe. Even just adding cream would taste great.
  • If you want a baked version, then this is what you have to do. Add about 5 tbsp cream towards the end of the recipe just before removing it from fire. Take the mix in a bowl. Top grated cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and browns. Your baked cheese spinach corn is ready.
  • If there are any leftovers they could be used as a stuffing for pancakes and also can be used as a stuffing for grilled or toasted corn sandwich.
