  3. Sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes or till the onions turn translucent.

  4. Add spinach and mix well.

  5. Add 2 cups of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

  6. Cool the spinach-onion mixture completely.

  7. Once cooled blend in a mixer to a smooth purée.

  8. Strain the purée with help of a sieve.

  9. Transfer it into the kadhai.

  10. Take milk in a bowl.

  11. Add fresh cream.

  12. Add corn flour and mix well till no lumps remain.

  13. Add the milk, cream and corn flour mixture to the spinach puree in the kadhai and mix well.

  14. Cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally, or else the corn flour will settle to the bottom and burn.

  15. Add salt, pepper powder and mix well. Freshly ground black pepper has a better flavour and aroma compared to readymade pepper powders.

  17. The Cream of Spinach Soup has now thickened and is ready to serve.

  18. Serve hot topped with Garlic Croutons or Cheese Croutons.
