Palak Kofta in Spaghetti is a combination of Italian with Indian taste. Most of the people run away with palak which is rich in many minerals and vitamins. This dish will be perfect for your family if they are choosy about the food and like most of the Italian dish. This dish will give your family the richness of palak with some new flavor to their taste buds. This dish is best served with Tandoori Roti, Kulcha, Naan or even rice.
