lehsuni palaklasooni palak recipe | lehsuni palak | palak lasooni | garlic spinach curry with step by step photo and video recipe. spinach based curries or gravies are very common across india. it is either used as a hero ingredient to form a gravy base, or it is used with cereals or lentils to make a side dish to rice. one such simple and easy spinach based curry is the lasooni palak recipe known for its simplicity and garlic flavour.

i am a huge fan of palak based recipes. there are 2 main reasons for it. the first and the main reason is due to the fact that it belongs to the leafy vegetable section. i generally like most of the leafy vegetables and i ensure to stash my refrigerator with it as much as possible. the other main reason being the colour you get out of the spinach leaves. particularly it is distinctive when you compare it with other traditional north indian curries. it does not follow the same pattern of red or orangish colour and i feel it is more appetizing. this may not necessarily be a reason for others but i have a strong fetish to green curries.

anyway, before wrapping up, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and variations to the lasooni palak recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used only garlic pods with the spinach curry base. well, the recipe dedicates to these 2 ingredients, but you can add other veggies like potatoes and carrots with it. secondly, if you have a reservation to the strong garlic flavour, you can limit the number of garlic pods as per your preference. lastly, the recipe does not come with additional veggies added in it. typically when you add paneer or aloo with spinach gravy base, it would increase the quantity. therefore, for this recipe, you may need to increase the spinach quantity from your usual quantity.
