After the above is cooled, blend the contents in a mixer/blender  for a minute and keep aside.

Now cut onion, garlic, green chillies and ginger into fine small pieces.

Heat oil in a pan and fry onion and garlic for half a minute. Add green chillies and ginger and fry a little more.

Add blended palak, milk and salt  in the pan, and stir well.

Check and adjust the consistency of the spinach soup.(Add little water if required). Boil the soup  for a minute and switch off the gas.

Take out the  soup in a serving bowl. Top it up with little fresh cream or malai.

Piping hot and tasty Spinach Soup is ready. Serve hot with any spicy namkeen or any other snack of your choice.
