Spinach Soup Recipe / Palak Soup Recipe / Keerai Soup Recipe / Cream of Spinach Soup Recipe


I have been making soup quite often nowadays. Each time i make it will different vegetable and different style. There is two good thing about this, one it is healthy for us and another i get more recipes for my site..This is a healthy creamy spinach soup which i made few days back and loved it. This is a low fat version, i didn't add cream in it, instead i mixed cornstarch with milk to give creaminess and it really worked. So try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..

  7. If you boil and blend a potato in then no need of flour and corn flour, it will be think and creamy without adding them .

  8. Hi Aarthi,

    Should I use only palak keerai? Or can I use use Siru keerai and arai keerai for this soup? Will the taste differ? TIA
