Whip up this nutritious yet delicious dish for your loved ones, and watch them lose themselves in its rich flavour and interesting texture.

This Khumbh Palak is much more flavourful than the average mushroom preparation as it is supplemented by a vibrant spinach paste, a tangy tomato paste, a pungent onion paste as well as whole spices and spice powders!

This tongue-tickling treat is rich in protein and iron, and low on calories, which makes it a dieter’s delight.

Serve with Oats Roti and Cucumber, Capsicum and Celery Salad .

Khumbh palak.. Awesome taste of the gravy. The flavours in mushroom have merged very well with the palak and tomato gravy.. The mushrooms also cooked perfectly. It goes well with the parathas, rotis and rice also.
