Spinach and Corn rice..

I frequently make a corn-coriander rice, following Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe. But today while making the same I found no fresh coriander in my refrigerator. Instead I had a bunch of fresh spinach, so just modified the dish to spinach-corn rice, and to my delight my daughter loved that. It is an easy and healthy rice, that can be served with chicken, egg or even just as it is. I served it with the sweet and sour chicken.

Things needed to make Spinach-corn rice:

  • Cooked rice: 1 cup
  • Chopped spinach: 1/2 cup
  • Frozen corn: 1/4 cup
  • Garlic(sliced): 1/2 tbsp
  • EVOO: 1 tbsp
  • Lime juice: 2 tsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps of making Spinach-corn rice:

1. Wash spinach well, drain water and chop. Thaw the frozen corn kernels.

2. In a pan heat EVOO, add sliced garlic, cook for 1 min. Add spinach, cook till it wilts. Add corn kernels, mix well. Add cooked rice, salt and black pepper powder, mix well. Switch off heat, sprinkle lime juice, mix and serve hot.

Note: chopped green chilies can be added if you are making this rice for adults.
