Palak Soup Recipe | Spinach Soup Recipe | Palak Shorba Recipe

I like only Tomato soup but after having spinach soup in a North Indian Restaurant  I started liking it.Before it Palak for me only Bitter.I tried at Home and taste is very Creamy now used to make soup in Winter Season. This was done in last week but today I am Sharing with all of you.

Preparation and cooking time 30 min.
Ingredients              Serving 4

•Spinach 2 bunches
•Butter                       2 tbsp
•Garlic                        6 cloves
•Cloves                       4
•Black pepper             8
•Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon
•Onion ,chopped 1 medium
•Ginger,chopped 1 inch piece
•Refined flour (maida) 2 tbsp
•Salt                           to taste
•Milk                           4-5 tbsp
•Fresh cream 3 tbsp
•Curry Leaves              Few

 Heat oil in a pan. Add curry leaves cloves, black pepper and sauté for a minute. 
Add cumin seeds and Garlic when they begin to change colour, add onion and sauté for two minutes.
Add refined flour  and saute for a sec. Add 2 cup of water and cover the pan and bring the mixture to boil for 5-6 min. on low flame. Meanwhile stir the Flame and let it cool.

Break the stems of the spinach leaves,wash and blanch in plenty of water. Drain and refresh in cold water.
Put the blanched spinach leaves along with onion mixture(pan mixture)in a blender and blend it in smooth puree. Strain the puree .
Add cream and milk (adjust milk quantity to get correct consistency).Add salt and bring the mixture to a boil on medium flame.

Serve hot. You can also serve with a dash of cream. 

Can replace Maida by Corn flour and another better option replace by boiled potato or bottle gourd Or Carrot. Just boil any one and grind along with spinach. In this way soup will become more healthy and you will get every time quite different taste.
There is not very big difference between Shorba and soup. Differences only in Consistency. Soup is more thick than shorma.
