  • While the rice cooks, take another pan, add oil,jeera seeds and the bay leaves. When they start spluttering, add the green chillies and the chopped onions. Saute till they turn a light golden in colour.
  • Meanwhile, Wash the spinach leaves and blend them to make a fine puree. Thaw the corns by microwaving for 10 seconds.
  • Now add the puree to the onions and mix well. Add the salt, garam masala powder, turmeric and lemon juice. Cover with a lid and cook for 7-10 mins until it starts bubbling a little. Finally add the corn and reduce to low-flame.
    Once the rice is almost cooked,add it to the gravy mixture and mix well gently with a spatula. Taste for salt and spices and make necessary additions.Remove from flame and let the spices and spinach blend with the rice.
