    Hi Preethi,

    Thanks for this recipe. I tried this recipe today and everybody in my family liked it. Infact, I even fed it with rice to my 3 year old son.

    Thanks again.

    Hi preethi. Nice recipe. But we should not use tomato and palak combination. Most of the people don't know it and they will use it. But this combination is risk factor for kidney stones. Better avoid tomato with palak dear. You can add milk to it.
