First things first, this Spinach Raita is a pleasure to look at – with vibrant green shreds of spinach dotting sparkling white curds. The very appearance tempts you to taste it, while the punchy taste of black salt makes you fall in love with.

This flavourful Spinach Raita is a great dish for athletes and those aiming to lose weight. While spinach gives you loads of nutrients, curd does its bit by giving you calcium, protein and essential probiotics. It is one of the best foods you can have for general health and weight loss.

Interestingly, we have used full-fat curds because it has more protein and sugar than leaner versions, making it good for our purpose.

Serve with parathas like Masala Paratha or Stuffed Soya Paratha or as a side dish to any Indian main course.

What is a raita?

  1. What are Raitas ? Raita is a quintessential accompaniment for any Indian meal. It adds a refreshing note, making the heaviest of meals seem light and digestible. Simply put, raita means veggies and/or fruits in curd.
  2. South Indians temper the raita with mustard and red chillies, while in the North it is served with a sprinkling of spice powders. A raita can be standalone, like Tomato RaitaPineapple Raita or Onion Raita. Or, it can be a combo of fruits and veggies like Dill and Cucumber Raita.
  3. Often, a garnish of coriander or mint is added to give the raita a herby punch. The herb itself can be the focus of a raita, as in the case of the popular Mint Raita!
  4. You can also make fun-packed raitas like the Boondi Raita, which appeal to kids as well as adults. Get creative with the fruit-veggie combos and garnishes too.
  5. When you are in the mood for some experimentation, try garnishing your raita with crushed toasted papad just before serving. Or, add some roasted cashews or crushed peanuts for a crunchy interlude. Unleash your imagination, and you will realize the world of raitas is endless.

Tastes great and have Spinach Raita for dinner very often. The beauty is that shredded spinach is added directly to the raita and the black salt gives it the perfect tangy taste. Good in fat and very tasty. Wan''t to get fit then have this often.
