I had never combined spinach with peas or corn. Last month, when I visited my friend M, she made this tasty sabzi using spinach and peas. Since A doesn't like paneer, I usually don't make palak paneer. So it was a good idea to combine corn or peas with spinach. Thank you M for this wonderful dish.

(Serves 4)

1 pkt spinach (10 0z pkt- chopped)
1 cup green peas
1/2 cup corn kernels
1 small tomato
1 small onion
1/2 tsp grated ginger root
1 tsp garam maasala
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp red chilli powder
A pinch of ground cloves (optional)
A pinch of cinnamon (optional)
2 tsp oil
Salt to taste
3-4 tbsp half & half or heavy cream (optional)

Before you start, cut tomato and onion into big chunks. Grind them into a paste. Take oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, turmeric, ginger, tomato-onion paste, garam masala, red chilli powder, ground cloves and cinnamon . Let sear for a minute and add spinach. After spinach wilts down, add peas, corn, salt and milk/cream. Let them cook for some time. The sabzi is now ready. Top it off with some cream (optional) and serve.
