Spinach Raita is something very tasty and easy to prepare. Spinach health benefits need not be given to explain the importance, as we all know about it. I have always heard that weekends are usually special at everyone’s place, but at my home I make very simple. It is usually Veggie Quinoa either on Saturday or Sunday. My hubby would want just yogurt for this as an accompaniment. I thought why not make it healthy with spinach and here is spinach raita πŸ™‚
