Fish Corn-Palak

fish dish with corn and palak

This recipe idea clicked while I was cleaning out my freezer yesterday, I found some spinach and corn from last week. Initially I planned to make a Fish Palak recipe in an usual "Palak Paneer" style, then thought of adding my own little twist, a cup of corn. I reserved some Corn-Palak gravy to make some "Paneer Corn-Palak" as well, and I must say that this is the most delicious version of "Palak Paneer" I have ever tried :-) Even the Fish Corn-Palak came out really well. I got a huge compliment from my daughter, she told me while eating, "mommy ,I liked the taste very much ":-)

Preparation time : 40 to 45 minutes
Cooking time : 25 minutes
Serves : 4 

For Marinating Fish :
  • 3 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder

Add the corn and let cook covered for a minute or so . Remove in a bowl and let cool.
