Salt ........ to taste
Sugar .... 1/2 tsp (optional)
Roasted and ground cumin seed powder ... 1/2 tsp

Wash the spinach leaves and cut them very finely. In a pan heat one tbsp oil and saute the spinach for 2-3 minutes adding a little salt and crushed green chillies. Set aside to cool.
Whisk the yogurt adding a little salt, cumin powder and sugar (if you like it slightly sweeter taste)
