I don’t know why it took me so much time to ask her for a guest post, but I am glad I did because she gave me this spicy and sweet Sweet Corn Spinach Curry that tickles the taste buds!

Over to Dimple!

When my dear friend Aruna asked me to do a guest post for her wonderful blog, I jumped at the chance.  She has always been an inspiration to me and I am always  learning so much from her gorgeous culinary recipes.

Here I would like to share a curry that I made as I fancied something spicy yet sweet.  Perfect with soft chapatis and rice.  Hope you enjoy friends….

Method to Make Sweet Corn and Spinach Curry
