Corn & Spinach Au Gratin

Augratin1

Cheesy and creamy Au Gratin is one of my favorite dishes when it comes to multi-cuisine food.

Au Gratin has its origin in French cuisine and is usually prepared in a shallow dish. It is baked or cooked under an over head grill or broiler to form a golden crust on top and is traditionally served in its baking dish.

Oops... Am I not indulging on a lot of fat these days!!! :( Got to watch my waist line!! Oh.. come on its after all yummy food and why resist on them for such reasons. Indulge sinfully and work out sincerely to keep yourself fit. Waaa What a Gyan!! :P

Ingredients:

Spinach chopped (palak) – 1 cup
Sweet corn kernels – 1 cup
Garlic – 2 pods
Onion – 1
Olive oil – 2 tsp
Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
Oregano powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – for taste
Mozzarella Cheese – 3/4 cup

For white sauce:

All purpose flour (Maida) – 4 tbsp
Butter – 4 tbsp
Milk – 3 cups

Method:

To make white sauce - Dilute the maida in milk and mix it thoroughly without lumps. Melt the butter in a pan. Simmer the stove, pour in the diluted milk mixture and stir continuously until the sauce thickens. Finally add salt and mix well.

Chop onion and garlic finely. Steam the corn and remove kernels.

Heat olive oil in a pan, add the chopped onion and garlic and sauté till they turn light brown.
Add the chopped spinach and corn and cook on medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper and oregano and mix well. Now add the white sauce and cook for 5 minutes.

Transfer this to a baking dish and sprinkle the rest of the grated cheese on top and grill in an oven till the cheese melts down.

Corn and Spinach Au Gratin is ready :)

Serve hot and enjoy eating :)

Tips:

You can use mashed potato instead of corn.

You can grill the Au Gratin a little more until the cheese slightly browns on top. It gives a rustic flavor.
