Make Your Winter Iron-Rich With These 14 Delicious Spinach Recipes

One of the most important seasonal vegetables that we get in the Indian winter is spinach. As kids, we were often told about the strength of Popeye that came from this healthy, green leafy vegetable. However, the taste of palak was always a deal-breaker. Moreover, there was hardly ever any variation in the palak ki sabzi that we got at home. It was either aalu-palak, palak-paneer, or palak-mushroom. And oh, the dreadful palak ke paranthe! If Mom felt a little generous, she would treat us with a cube of cheese melted in the sabzi — once in the entire spinach season. However, times are now changing, and we don’t need to stick to the old staples when we’ve got so many ideas for different spinach recipes.

It’s time to go from ‘ew palak‘ to ‘yum palak‘ with these 14 delicious recipes.
