Palak/ Spinach and corn soup

A delicious and healthy soup that the family will love. The secret ingredient in this is tha Maggie magic cube which adds a zing to the soup. My heartfelt thanks to my friend Nandini Bhandarkar for having shared her recipe.


A small bunch of Palak

1 inch piece of ginger

100 gms sweet corn pressure cooked with a little salt

1 Maggie Magic cube

Salt and pepper as required

1 tsp wheat flour

1 cup milk

1 heaped tsp Amul butter


Wash and discard the hard stems of the Palak. The tender stems can be used. Blanch the Palak. ie. Put it in some boiling water for just half a minute and then remove and plunge it in cold water. This helps retaining the lovely green colour of the leaves. Puree them with the ginger and a little milk. Tip it into a container. Heat the butter in a pan. Add the wheat flour and roast it for a minute. Add the remaining milk and keep stirring till it starts thickening. Pour this sauce into the palak puree and tip in the sweet corn along with the water in which it was boiled. Add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer on a gentle flame till the rawness of the Palak is gone. Serve hot with grated cheese if desired.
