Palak (Spinach) Soup



Spinach Soup

Last week was a rain filled week. On one such rainy day, I prepared spinach soup. I sat in the veranda relishing a bowl of vibrant green spinach soup, watching the rain and waiting for Nehal to come home from school. Chill weather, pouring rain and a hot bowl of soup! What more can a girl want. :)

Despite the humble ingredients, this spinach soup is simple yet extremely flavorful. And you can bring it to the table in less than 30 minutes. Do check out another version of spinach soup I blogged earlier on.

    I tried this last night…..turned out very nice. Skipped the curry leaves and bay leaf though as I didn’t have them. Was also a bit skeptical about curry leaves, but will try with them again.. Of all the recipes I found online, this was the only one which seemed practical and felt yummy.
