Palak-Corn/Spinach-Corn Soup

Couple of weeks back, one of our friends had invited us over for dinner and that was where I had Spinach soup for the first time. Naveen and I loved it instantly!! I decided to come home and try it myself sometime.
And I finally made it over the weekend!!! Weekend was cold and rainy ...And the weather was perfect for us to relish a hot bowl of soup. Thanx Sangeeta, for sharing tips on this lovely and healthy recipe. Hope you all like it !! This will also be my entry for Nupur's 'P' of A to Z of Indian Vegetables


1 bunch Fresh Spinach
1/2 cup Sweet corn kernels
1 Tomato, small sized
1 Onion, medium sized
2 tsp Butter
3-4 Cloves
2" Cinnamon stick
1" Fresh Ginger
3-4 tbsp Whole Milk
1/2 tsp Black pepper, powdered
Salt as per taste

  1. Wash and cut spinach leaves into pieces. Cut onions and tomatoes into chunks

  2. Cook spinach onions and ginger in salt water until they become soft and are cooked. To this, add tomotoes, a little before the spinach and onions are done.

  3. Switch off the stove after the veggies are cooked and let it cool.

  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp butter in a kadai and add cloves and cinnamon. Saute for a minute and keep aside.

  5. Cook corn kernels in microwave for about 3 mins or until they are cooked and keep aside.
