Tarla Dalal    Hi Ankita, The taste depends highly on the palak. Still, you can add little sugar or cream to balance the bitterness.

madam I want to know, what will be the difference in taste if cream is not added?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ritaraj, If cream is added it gives a better taste and also the bitterness of the subzi decreases.
