Mushroom Palak Soup

#MushroomPalakSoup ; #Soup s are divided into two broad categories Vegetarian and non Vegetarian. Again some soups are made slightly watery and some are thick. Corn flour or maida is generally used to thicken the soup. But we can use broken wheat, broken maize, oats or broken bajra ( pearl millet ) instead of flour to get extra fiber.
Yesterday I bought fresh palak and mushroms from market and I decided to do a soup after our regular evening walk. Here is the method to do mushroom palak soup.
