Corn Palak ki Tikki

Saw this being made on a TV programme - NDTV - they also have it on their website.  And I had the palak and the corn. I had the paneer too, but I did not add that since VK does not like paneer!

Ingredients ( the amounts can vary)

Corn cob - 1 medium - remove kernels
Milk -  3 tbsp - just enough liquid to make sure the corn does not get scorched
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp

Spinach - 1 large bunch

Potato - 1 medium - boiled
Paneer - 100 gms (optional)

Chilie powder - to taste ( can omit if you use green chilies)
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Kasuri methi - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Green chilies - 1 ( optional) - finely chopped
Ginger - 1/4" finely chopped
Coriander leaves - chopped - optional - few
Cornflour - to bind - 1 tbsp
Oil - to shallow fry

Blanch the corn in milk.  What I did was to put the bowl with corn and milk in the MW for a minute. The corn was fresh and tender.
Chop fine or put in blender for a few seconds - do not make a paste. Add chaat masala and lime. This is to balance the sweet taste of corn

Blanch the spinach leaves.  Always drain the spinach so that the water is not retained. Otherwise you will need extra corn flour and it will make the tikki chewy

Chop this fine or add it along with the corn while blending

Mash potato and add the grated paneer
Add this to the corn - spinach mixture

Add the spice powders, ginger, cornstarch and make a tikki mixture
Make balls and flatten

Put on a tawa - preferably the non-stick pan - since you can cut out the oil usage.
Brown on both sides.

Had here with some fresh veggie salad.  Linking to - the greens recipes of Tickling Palates
