Spinach Raita

I had this for lunch at a friend's and though I'm not a big yogurt fan, I loved this one. And it's so super simple!

Sonu's Spinach Raita

Clean and chop spinach leaves.
Put 1-2 cups of salted water to boil. When boiling, drop spinach in it for 3-4 minutes.

Drain well. Keep aside.

Beat yogurt lightly with a fork. Add salt and crushed jeera. Add the boiled palak, chill for ½ hour and serve with roti or rice.

Mustard chutney

A friend would send this sauce and some delightful kachoris over once in a while. Though I loved the kachoris, the sauce is what I craved. I finally got the recipe and here it is!

Warning: the chutney/ sauce has a raw mustard taste that is pretty spicy but so delicious

Pooja's Mustard Chutney

100 g yogurt (strain out water for 10 mts)
4 green chillies
½ tsp mustard sauce
1 T mustard oil

Steam green chillies (add chillies to boiling water, cover with lid and leave for 2 mins).

 Remove from pan and de-seed.
Mix chillies with a little yogurt and blend tog in a mixer. 

Then add the mustard oil, mustard sauce and rest of the yogurt. Adjust salt according to taste and enjoy.
