How to make Palak Raita:

  1. To make Palak Raita, take a deep bowl and put the dahi into it.
  2. Beat the dahi well with the help of a whisk. We are whisking the curd beacuse it enhances the texture and mouthfeel of the raita.
  3. Add the salt to taste. You can also use rock salt for better flavour.
  4. Add the chopped green chillies for the spice. You can increase or decrease the quantity of the chillies according to your spice tolerance level. 
  5. Add about 2 pinches of sugar to balance the flavours in the Palak Raita. This step is totally optional. 
  6. Add about a pinch of black pepper powder to perk up the flavours of the Palak Raita.
