while, i am huge fan of creamy tomato soup, my husband loves palak soup. interestingly, most of the time, i end up preparing tomato soup. however, last week i decided to give a pleasant surprise by preparing the creamy palak soup. he prefers to be it very simple without any cream. however, this time i made the spinach soup more creamy and thick. i was skeptical as he never prefers to be thick and creamy. but he really enjoyed having the creamy version too. later, i than decided to make a video of the same soup and post on my website too.

furthermore, i would like to highlight the health benefits of palak or spinach leaves. research has proved that dark green palak leaves are rich in chlorophyll. it is very important to improve the eye sight, cataracts and macular degeneration. also, dark green spinach leaves are rich in iron, low in calories and excellent source of vitamins. furthermore, the spinach leaves are loaded with flavonoids. basically, flavonoids are a helpful antioxidants which protects the human body from radicals. in conclusion, i would not hesitate to call spinach leaves as nutrient dense food.

finally, i would highly recommend to check out my indian soup recipe collections. particularly, tomato soup, veg manchow soup, sweet corn soup recipes. also, i have also posted south indian clear soup/rasam recipes too. specifically, beetroot soup, kokam soup, lemon soup and tomato onion rasam.
