Spinach Raita

It's always necessary to include greens in our diet. Some people especially kids dislike eating greens or the leafy vegetables. But these are the most healthy food provided by nature which is fully packed with lot of nutrients and vitamins. They are low in calories and fat content is so less. 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.




What you need?

2 cups chopped Spinach
1 cup Yoghurt
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
2 Green chillies chopped
1 tsp Oil
Salt

How to prepare?

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard and cumin seeds. Add spinach and green chillies.

Spinach will leave out water. Saute until spinach is cooked and the water is dried up. Allow it to cool.

Beat the yoghurt well. Add spinach and salt. Mix well. Serve chilled with rice or roti.


Notes:
* You can also add mint or coriander leaves with spinach.
* You can add some chopped garlic just before adding spinach.
* Garnish with some chaat masala or red chilli powder.
