Raita is one of my favorite sides and try to make as many varieties as possible. This is one such raita that is tasty as well as healthy.
Palak / Spinach is loaded with Iron and it is said that 100 grams of this leafy vegetable meets 25% of the daily Iron requirement of the body. And also spinach has several anti oxidants like Vitamin A and C, flavonoid poly phenic anti oxidants like lutein,zea xanthin and betra carotene.
And the yogurt used in this recipe is a body coolant and a good source of Calcium.So what is not to like in this simple dish!
