I am a big fan of Palak /Spinach/ Pasalai keerai in tamil. I love its taste in anyform, like kootu, poriyal and many more. I learnt this soup, when I was in my school...in my home science class....little memories also,…..spinach is a good source of vitamins and minerals.I know many people r not fan of palak or any sort of greens. Greens is a fiber which have lot of irons too...To gain iron we need to have little greens in our diet.... Here i have used a big bunch of leaves which gave me 4 cups of spinach. I served 2 full cups of soup....i have added lot of full cream milk and cream. If diet conscious add low fat milk and cream...... kids will surely love this recipe.........

Water 2 cup
Onion chopped 1 no
