Love the palak raita and i make it without blanching the spinach. Just chop or shred spinach and add it to full fat yogurt. I also don''t add sugar and the raita tastes fab. Nice healthy fat there.

I was quite fed up of the regular raitas like boondi raita, pineapple raita, vegetable raita so I decided to try this raita for my family and they really enjoyed it....
