Garlicky Spinach Raitha


I had been to India and obviously there was absolutely no time for updating my blog ....and missed all the other bloggers yummy post what they had posted....It was such a special occasion this time ...my sister's wedding ..all went very well and I am so happy for her. Today I am sharing one of my favourite raita this is very simple but tastes out of the world when chilled....Mark these words:)
I had actually got this recipe from a Internet video long back and I am so happy that I tried  its always been top favourites among my guests whom ever I have invited:)..

Ingredients


2 cups spinach (washed )


2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)


2 green chilli (finely chopped)


1' ginger (finely chopped)


1/4 tsp Roasted Cumin powder


1/4 tsp Chaat masala


2 cups of beaten unflavoured Yogurt


1 tsp white sesame seeds

2 tbsp oil
