9 Easy Indian Spinach Recipes | Palak Recipes

     Spinach - one of the highly consumed leafy vegetables in India. It is commonly called 'palak' and there are so many mouth watering recipes you can make with this green.Today I am going to share with you a collection of recipes from mykitchenodyssey.Before goign to the collection lets see some nutrition information.

   In a 100 g serving, there is only 23 calories. But you have to eat when its fresh,quickly blanched,steam or quick boil to get all the nutrients present.Palak is rich in vitamins like manganese,folate,vitamin K.While reading the above information in Wikipedia  I found that packaged spinach undergoes radiation to increase the shelf life and also to kill the harmful bacteria present.So you are asking whether is there any loss of nutrients ? Even after exposure there will be some vitamins intact like vitamin c,e,k,b9 and four carotenoids.So the experiment showed there is no such big loss considering the benifits of killing any harmful bacteria present.
     So how this leafy green got famous? Do You remember the popeye show?The minute he drinks the puree from the can he get some bust and he will put off the villain. The iron content in spinach is wrongly assumed to be 10 times more than the actual value because of the decimal point misplacement by a german scientist.So its a myth but not real story.Also while eating please consider It is one of the most pesticide-contaminated vegetables. So wash thoroughly or try to get organic produce.
