Avocado & Corn Salsa

An interesting take on the traditional salsa, this one has more of a sweet & buttery flavour!! Gets ready in minutes and goes great with nachos and even as a salad/sandwich filling.

Read on for the easy recipe -

Preparation Time - 10 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 fully ripe avocado
  • 1 sweet con of the cob
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/3 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Cook the sweet corn with water and a little salt for 6-7 minutes. Remove it from water and keep aside till it cools down to room temperature. Using a sharp knife, cut the corn from the cob.

Cut, halve and de-seed the avocado. Scoop out the flesh and roughly chop it up.

Take the oregano, chili flakes, vinegar, olive oil and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix it. Add the avocado flesh and sweet corn to the bowl. Toss up.

Chill for 20 mins before serving.

Serve with nachos or even as a salad.

Note - Do not throw the avocado skin as it makes for a great serving bowl.

Spinach and Sweet corn Sandwich

The yucky spinach (as most kids would label it) in a different avatar !!! This is one of those simple sandwiches that are healthy, filling and yummy, all at the same time. They make for a great 4 o'clock snack and taste equally good in the lunch-box.

Read on for the easy recipe -

Preparation Time - 10-12 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 1/2 cup shredded spinach leaves 
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn
  • 1/2 of a small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/3 tsp GG paste
  • 1/3 tsp chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 4-6 tbsp grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter 

Preparation - Blanch the spinach and keep aside to stain excess water. Give it a buzz in a food processor to get a coarse textured paste.

Cooking - Heat the oil in a wok. Add the chopped onion and fry for 1 minute before adding the GG paste. After 2 mins, add the chili powder, spinach paste, sweet corn and salt. Cook for 3-4 mins. Remove from flame and keep aside.

Layer half of the spinach-sweet corn filling over a bread slice.

Top it with 2-3 tbsp grated cheese and close with another bread slice. Repeat the process with the remaining bread slices and filling.

Heat a sandwich maker/tawa. Brush a little butter on the outer sides of the sandwiches and grill/toast for 2 mins. (Cut into triangles if doing it on a tawa).

Serve hot or cold.

Note - The cheese is optional. One may skip it or even add some crumbled paneer instead.
