 The recipe to make Palak Pulao is easy. Start the process by preparing spinach paste. Take about  1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add in the chopped onion and saute till transparent. Later add spinach.Cook on medium heat till spinach changes its color and the water seeps out. Remove from flame. Cool ground to paste. The next paste to  prepare is  by grinding together coriander leaves, green chillies,  garlic paste , ginger paste  with curd. These two pastes are base of  this  Pulao
