Iron-Rich Amaranth And Sweet Corn Curry

Amaranth n corn

Hello ladies. In India this is the season when sweet corn is available in every supermarket and even on the streets. So here’s another recipe with sweet corn that also provides dietary fibre and iron. Women of 40+ need to increase haemoglobin levels to at least 13 so that other nutrients are absorbed. Adding iron-rich food in your diet eliminates the need for supplements. And guess what, my dish tastes fantastic.

The ingredients you will need:-

Amaranth 2

Amaranth leaves (rajgira, laal bhaji) one bunch, chopped fine

Amaranth 4

2 medium size potatoes, chopped into medium size pieces
Corn kernels of 1 cob (approx. 1.1/2 cup)

Amaranth 3
2 medium size onions finely chopped
5-6 garlic and 1/2 inch ginger ground together into a paste
1.1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric (haldi)
1/2 tsp garam masala or any curry powder
1/2 tsp roasted coriander seed powder (dhania)
Salt to taste


Amaranth 1

In a non-stick pan take 1 tsp oil n sauté onions till golden brown.
Grind ginger-garlic into a paste. Add to the onions and stir for a minute.
Add all powders except salt and stir well.
Add corn kernels, chopped potatoes and chopped amaranth leaves.
Add salt and stir well.
Cover and cook on low flame till done.

Stay healthy and beautiful. Love you all.
