palak raita

this day green was calling me and so i made this simple and easy palak raita. since i had made chana pulao this day, i had to make a raita. and what better than having some greens in your raita. i have used yogurt but my vegan readers can use cashew curd to make this palak raita.

i served the palak raita with chana pulao and veg kachumber. this raita recipe can also be used for fasting or vrat as well. you can also serve it with chole biryani or matar pulao recipe.

serve palak raita as side accompaniments with a dal rice or roti sabzi or biryani or pulao. raita goes very well with rice based dishes.
