Bathue ka Raita

After long wait and several failed attempts, I finally laid my hands on a prized possession❤😀
Bathua Saag!!! 😍😍
I was literally thrilled.😀

People staying abroad can totally identify with me. (I am craving fresh, red carrots badly)😋

Simple ingredients are sometimes difficult to get and even if you do get them, the taste is missing. 🤔😳

So I thought about making Bathua raita and paired that with Tawa wala whole wheat gobhi kulcha (without yeast), and Chole.
