CREAMY PALAK SOUP

Soups are my favourites. Before I used to make soups with readymade Knor packets mix. But its always good to have fresh homemade soup right? This recipe "Palak soup", I started preparing after my daughter born. As palak is very good source of iron rich and healthy, I started giving her right from her 7 th month . ButI was giving her under simple process of just grinding boiled palak with salt and then strained. Later as Smera grown up I started making slight variation that increase its taste and here it goes my Microwavable recipe which can be prepared quicky-


INGREDIENTS

1 Bunch Palak.

1/2 Cup Milk.

2 tbs Chopped Shallots.

1 tbs Chopped Garlic.

5 Sliced Button Mushrooms.

1 tbs Butter.

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Water to sprinkle.

1 tbs Fresh Cream (optional)

METHOD

Wash the spinach leaves and discard the thick stem. In a microwable bowl add half of butter and micro for 20 sec. Add palak leaves and sprinkle some water and cook for 5 min high.

Cool the mixture and puree in the blender along with milk. Keep aside.

In another micro bowl, add the remaining butter and cook for 20 seconds on high. Add chopped onions,garlic and sliced mushroom and micro for around 3 to 4 min or till the onions are trasparent.

Now add the spinach puree, salt and pepper and bring to boil for about 5 min high covered.

Add fresh cream just before serving.
