In winter nothing but a bowl of hot soup can give you the needed comfort . Coming back to today’s dish – Palak Peas soup ; it is pretty easy and quick to make with just a few ingredients required. Adding fresh / frozen peas while making palak soup is purely optional . But i like to add as it gives nice volume and creaminess to the soup . However if you don’t have peas .. you can omit them and add some cornflour too . Choice is all yours. Spinach Green Peas Soup is so refreshing and full of flavor and makes a great party starter. This palak peas soup is something even a new bee to kitchen can’t go wrong.And the outcome is just delicious… Even the kids who don’t like spinach will like this soup .Do try for yourself..
In a pan , add butter. Once its hot , add roughly chopped onion, ginger, garlic and green chilli. Sauté it for 2-3 minutes on medium to high flame.
Then add green peas and chopped spinach .Saute for 1-2 mins .
Add 1 cup water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Once the mixture is cooled, blend it in a mixer to a super smooth purée. If you want you can strain the puree or use as such . I usually blend it very smooth and omit straining part .
Transfer the puree to the same pan , add some water and keep to boil on medium flame. Add milk and mix well .If you want to make it more thicker , you can dissolve about 1tsp cornflour in milk and then add .I usually don't add cornflour .
Add salt and pepper powder .Mix .If required add some water to adjust the consistency .Allow to boil for 4-5 minutes .
Garnish with cream and serve hot Spinach Peas soup with some croutons / garlic bread . Enjoy !!
