Spinach(Palak) soup

I love most of the soups. When I saw an article about soups in my recipe collection from old Kannada weekly, I was very much interested in it. I tried most of them and almost all turned out great. But I was a bit hesitant to try the spinach soup. I am not very comfortable with the strong spinach smell, but still I tried it with few changes and it turned out really good. It is a perfect dish for cold weather.

Ingredients:
1 and 1/2 cups palak(spinach)
1/2 cup onion(cut into small pieces)
1 tea spn corn flour or maida
2 tea spns butter
Pepper powder
1/2 cup milk(optional)
Salt

Method:
Heat 1 tea spn butter. When it melts, add spinach and fry for 1-2mins. Add 1 cup water and cook till spinach leaves become tender. Grind them into a smooth puree using mixer/blender.
Heat remaining butter and fry onions till they turn translucent. Now add spinach puree. Mix corn flour in milk or water and add this to the spinach mixture stirring continuously. Add salt and pepper. When it thickens to desired consistency, take off from heat.
Serve hot.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 15mins
