Palak Curry

Palak Curry - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Palak curry is a healthy and simple palak recipe made with spinach/palak leaves, onions, tomatoes and spices. It goes well with rotis, phulkas and rice. In this recipe, I have chopped palak leaves and then mixed with spices. You can also puree the palak leaves and then add to the gravy. Palak is rich in iron and minerals and this curry is a good way of making it a part of your daily diet.
