Palak soup

It has been a long long time since I have posted anything here,thanks to my busy schedule and a very active toddler.So here is a recipe which is dedicated for toddlers/kids.Since long I was planning to give him spinach and finally found a tricky way to do that,so made this soup and he just loved it!Here is a way of giving healthy(which is typically not tasty) food to your kid by making it tasty.What more would a mother want :)

Ingredients -
spinach/palak(8-10 leaves)
green peas/matar(1/4 cup)
onion(1 small)
garlic cloves(1-2)

butter(a small bit)
milk(2-3 tbspn)

Method -
Wash the spinach well and chop it roughly.
Heat water in a pan.Once it starts boiling add the spinach and peas to it.
After about a minute drain out the water and remove the spinach and peas.
Do not discard the water.
Chop the onion and garlic finely.
Heat oil in a pan.Add the chopped onion and garlic.

Add the blanched spinach and peas to it.
Once cooled grind them to a paste using some of the above water.
Put the paste in a pan and let it cook by adding the remaining water.
Once done add salt as per taste and a pinch of sugar.
Now add milk and stir.
Let it simmer for another minute.Finally add the butter.
Palak soup is ready to serve :-)
