Spinach / Palak Soup

One way to start your day in a healthy way would be to have soup. Soups are the lightest and refreshing ones. A bowl of hot soup is more comforting on a cold winter's day. So i made the Spinach / Palak soup. It is one of the healthiest soup and a very nice way to include greens in our diet. I saw this in a cookery show from some local channel and i want to share this recipe to you all.

The cute Pepper and Salt shaker in the picture below was gifted by Lubna of Yummy Food . I loved it. That looks so cute isn't it!
