How To Make A Vibrant Green Spinach Puree -This is one of the basic posts that I have been wanting to post for a long time.
Palak / Spinach is something that I buy on a weekly basis and I love to add the puree in various dishes so that the Lil ones will eat the greens without a fuss.
Earlier on when I started cooking I either let it cook too long or God knows what reason, the puree used to look very dull and unpleasant!
Then came the time to do some experimenting and a little discussion with friends lead me to the perfectly green puree! There may be other methods too but here is something that works well for me.So here is the post on How To Make A Vibrant Green Spinach Puree.

  • Clean the spinach leaves and wash and let it drain.DO NOT squeeze out the water,just let it drain in a colander..Keep a large vessel with cold water nearby
  •  Heat water in a large pan and add about a teaspoon of salt. For this batch I added rock salt.Normal table salt can be used too.Bring the water to boil and put in the spinach leaves.
  • Leave it in the pan for exactly 2 minutes. Remove from pan and drop into the vessel with cold water. Let it be in the water for another 2 minutes. Drain well.Again DO NOT squeeze out the excess water.
  • Puree in a blender jar and use as needed.
