Makkai Palak / Corn and Palak gravy

Spinach is a very healthy leafy vegetable.. Most of us know that and that is the first food that comes to mind when discussing healthy stuff.. I love (and sincerely try) to include Spinach in our diet at least once a week. Twice a week would be awesome. So when I was looking for recipes that can be had as a side for roti or pulao, I remembered this very pretty looking gravy. This looks so tempting and appealing with yellow corn kernels popping out in a green silky smooth palak gravy..

Spicy Corn Salad / Corn Chaat

Want something quick and yet very kid friendly??? Here is one… When Valli announced that “Cooking with corn” as one of the themes, this immediately came to my mind as I have been wanting to try this for ever.. Not sure why I postponed for such a long time… Anyways this is going to be regular from now on..

Eggless Slovak Paska Bread

One of the great ways to beat the stress is Bread baking for me.. But I never got a chance to try this delicious Bread until now but I wanted to try it as soon as Gayathri announced it for this month's Eggless Baking Group. Slovak Paska is an Eastern European Bread during Easter and is loaded with butter and eggs. This is also a very decorative bread.. With this recipe I got one 9x5 loaf and one 5x3 loaf..

Creamed Corn

The creamed corn is a rich and delicious recipe I saw in one of my favorite cookery show by Alton Brown - Good Eats. It is very flavorful, quick and yet silky and delicious.. To make this less rich, substitute milk for cream. One can also use other herbs instead of Rosemary. One point to note is – just bruise the rosemary and NOT CHOP INTO PIECES. I learnt it the hard way. Also when removing the kernels from corn, knife should be facing towards the board or you will get corn milk facial. The recipe yields 3 cups of the creamed corn.
