Palak Raita/Spinach Yogurt Dip

Spinach is a rich source of vitamin C and Iron, Yogurt is full of calcium!
Both together fulfill almost the basic nutrition requirements, isn't it?
Yesterday was planning to have some North Indian dish and guess what came into my mind?
Palak Raita/Spinach Yogurt Dip and Ajwain Kulcha. Good combi, aint it?
Was Inspired by Tarla dalal's recipe of Palak Raita.
I just love her and the way she explains.
Here I tell you the recipe of Palak Raita.

Ingredients:
Palak/Spinach- 250-300gms
Green chillies-1-2 finely chopped
Yogurt- 500ml
Water-3 cups
Black Salt to taste( If Black salt is not available use normal salt, I used black salt)
Black pepper powder-1/2 tsp
Sugar-1/2 tsp

Recipe:
In a deep bottom pan add water and bring it to boil.
Now add Palak/Spinach to it and blanch it.Blanching should be carried out only for 1-2 mins.
Now strain the water and cut the spinach into fine pieces
In a bowl whisk yogurt till fluffy and creamy.
Add black salt,sugar,black pepper powder and mix well.
Adjust salt according to your taste.
