Spinach Soup / Palak Soup




I often like to have variety soup’s which makes me feel fresh and energetic. One of my favorite which I like most is palak soup. This is really very easy to prepare with few common ingredients which is always there in my pantry. The best moment for me to have soup is when it rains heavily throughout the day with dark cloudy environment. Being a native of coastal Karnataka where there will be four months heavy rainfall, I always like munching hot fritters with hot fiery soup’s.
Here is a recipe of spinach/palak soup I hope you will all like. Also do check other soup recipes such as restaurant style Tomato Soup, Cabbage Soup.
