– I used frozen spinach to make raita. Place the spinach in a bowl and add 3 tablespoon of water. Microwave until the spinach has thawed and softened. – Heat oil in a pan and add the thawed spinach to it. Add salt needed for the spinach and saute on medium heat.
– Let this mixture cook down. – In the meantime whisk the yogurt. Add milk to make it a little thinner in consistency. Start with a tablespoon of milk and increase as you go and check what consistency you like the yogurt to be.
– Add the red chili powder, roasted cumin powder, sugar and salt needed (remember we already added a little salt to the spinach) and whisk well. – Add the cooled spinach to the yogurt and mix.
– Heat a small pan and add 1 teaspoon of oil. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and dry red chili to the oil and let it fry until aromatic. – Add the seasoning to the prepared yogurt mixture.
