Creamy potato spinach soup

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel

Soup prepared with potato and spinach, which is very creamy and tasty during cold days or even rainy days. I had tasted this soup in one of the best Indian restaurants in Mississauga, Canada - which is very creamy and yummy. I couldn’t stop myself sipping that piping hot soup and that made me to try this soup at home. I could bring exact taste of that yummy soup, which i had tried in the restaurant.
