Spinach Soup / Green Soup

I am a big fan of Palak /Spinach/ Pasalai keerai in tamil. I love its taste in anyform, like kootu, poriyal and many more. I learnt this soup, when I was in my school...in my home science class....little memories also,…..spinach is a good source of vitamins and minerals.I know many people r not fan of palak or any sort of greens. Greens is a fiber which have lot of irons too...To gain iron we need to have little greens in our diet.... Here i have used a big bunch of leaves which gave me 4 cups of spinach. I served 2 full cups of soup....i have added lot of full cream milk and cream. If diet conscious add low fat milk and cream......  kids will surely love this recipe.........

Ingredients
Spinach  leaves 4 cup
Water 2  cup
Onion chopped 1 no
Full cream Milk 1 cup
Maida 2tbsp
Fresh  cream   1tbsp
Butter 2 tbsp
Garam masala ½ tsp
Salt and pepper for  seasoning .
Method
Wash the spinach leaves and remove the thick stems. Cook the spinach in water for 10 min .Cool it and make a puree in a blender/mixer (we can make a perfect smooth puree )Keep aside. 
Heat the butter in a pan. Add the chopped onions and saute for for 3  min  or till the onions are transparent and add garam masala. Now, add the plain flour and fry on low heat.   Add milk and spinach puree. Then add salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat for 3  min.      
 Add the fresh cream just before serving.
