Spinach Raita (Yoghurt)
A simple raita to make, it is quite refreshing in summer. Serves 3-4
1 cup Yoghurt or dahi
1/2 cup spinach leaves, boiled and mashed roughly. Do not make a paste, leafy texture looks and tastes better
1 tsp. roasted cumin seeds (jeera), coarsely ground
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp. or less red chilli powder, adjust to taste
You can add 1-2 chopped green chillies. If you do, reduce red chillies
Beat the yoghurt with a fork.
Add all other ingredients and mix well. If it is too thick add a little milk and mix it again.
You can garnish it with a sprinkling of chilli powder and ground roast cumin seeds.
Serve with an Indian meal.
A little cumin powder and chilli powder sprinkled on top makes it look nice.
