A rich preparation of spinach and sweet corn, cooked with a wide assortment of ingredients ranging from coconut for texture to fenugreek leaves for a lilting aroma that one cannot resist... indeed, the Palak Makai Khaas is a luxuriant dish perfect for a Indian Party Recipes What makes this Palak Makai Khaas unique though is that, despite its intense and indulgent taste, it is not too complex or difficult to prepare. Once you methodically keep all the ingredients ready, it would take just minutes to prepare because both palak and sweet corn cook quickly. Serve it hot and fresh with your favourite Parathas Roti or puri.
