  1. i like daal palak very much..yummy n healthy tooo..

  2. shanti madam, Ur blog is really impressive and will be useful to any newly married girl of ocurse for us too. A simple suggestion, hope u would not mistake. When u cook palak, it is not advisable to add tomatoes.the pulp around the seeds in tomato and palak both have high purine value. High purine contents increases the chance of gout and other ailments.
