Creamy Palak/Spinach Soup

Hey…Today’s post holds a special memory. I had just started experimenting with my cooking skills when my husband (then my fiancee) made a request for this soup. He had tasted this soup in some restaurant when he had been out with his friends. I took up the challenge and after a few trial and errors I finally called him to taste my soup. His comment was “it tastes just like the restaurant soup” was enough for boosting my confidence. Since then this soup has become a part of our many evening dinners. We both love the creamy taste of this soup. It is healthy tasty and very easy to make. Palak/Spinach always reminded me of “Popeye” it was a cartoon that we used to watch when we were kids. It inspired us to eat spinach/palak to become strong. Spinach is very healthy vegetable and contains lots of fiber. So make this healthy soup today and incorporate it in your lifestyle.

Ingredients:

Oil- 1 tbsp

Palak/Spinach roughly chopped- 500 gms

Ginger,Garlic roughly chopped- 1 tbsp

Green Chilli roughly chopped – 2 pieces

Onion (roughly chopped)- 1 small size

Cream- 1/4 cup

Water as required

Salt as per taste

Black Pepper- 1/2 tsp

Milk – 4 tbsp

Method:

1) In a pan add oil and let it become bit warm. Now add the ginger, garlic and green chilli and saute for 2 mins (do not over cook it should not burn). Now add the onion and cook till translucent.

2) Once the onions are cooked add the spinach, salt, pepper and half a cup of water and cover the vessel and let it cook on medium flame for 10 mins.

3) After 10 mins check the spinach. If cooked switch off the gas. Take this spinach in a mixture jar and add 1 tbsp of cream and grind into fine paste.

4) Take this spinach paste in a pan. Check the salt and pepper if required add some more. Add the milk and some water to make it soup consistency. It should not be too thin nor to thick. Add the remaining cream and bring to boil. Keep the flame on medium all the time.

5) Serve the soup while hot. Garnish with cream/coriander/mint leaves.

  1. This is so good. I’ve been hunting for a creamy palak (as I love both the ingredients) soup recipe that won’t tire out my “lazy” bones while cooking it. Thank you for it. 🙂
