I adore raitas. If you’re a regular reader or become one, you’ll figure this out. It will be obvious from how much I sing their praises or simply just from the sheer amount of raita dishes I will be posting.
Gradually, I’ll be adding two more: Okra Raita and Potato (Aloo) Raita. Today however, I will bring one more delicious cold side to the table: Palak Raita. If you’ve seen my Palak Paneer post, you will know that the word palak basically means “spinach” and the gist of the dish very simply put, is spinach in yogurt. However, that is not all there is to it. As is characteristic with anything in Indian cuisine, there are also spices involved. The result is a creamy spiced spinach side dish, a perfect cooling companion for any fiery hot meat-based main dish.
