Spinach Raita (Yoghurt)

Palak Raita

Reeta Kumar

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


  1. Beat the yoghurt with a fork.

  2. Add all other ingredients and mix well. If it is too thick add a little milk and mix it again.

  3. You can garnish it with a sprinkling of chilli powder and ground roast cumin seeds.

  4. Serve with an Indian meal.


  • A little cumin powder and chilli powder sprinkled on top makes it look nice.
