Palak Kadhi

Try this healthy variant of the delicacy with the goodness of the iron-rich palak in it. Palak kadhi has a unique flavor and appealing color contributed by spinach puree. You could alternatively finely chop the spinach and add to the regular kadhi for a bite and body. Enjoy hot with steamed brown/red rice or multigrain phulkas.
