For being healthy, start including lots of greens in your diet !!
Spinach raita is a refreshing raita and is so quick to make. I know I have said many times before that we are a raita fan family :). They are not just healthy, they sure give a light feeling and a comfort food too. Spinach and garlic is a wonderful combo, but my husband doesn't like adding garlic to this raita, so I usually make without it. You can add garlic if you wish, either way this green raita tastes just great and will be loved by all.
