Method:
Clean and remove stems from 1 big bunch of spinach.
If possible try get baby spinach, that works best for this recipe.

Wash drain and transfer leaves to a microwave safe bowl.
image
Cover and Microwave for 2-3 minutes.
image
Immerse in ice cold water to cool.

Once cool, drain spinach. Squeeze out all water and transfer to a blender. Also add 1/2 inch ginger and 1/2 a green chilli.
image
Also add 1 1/2 cup very thick dahi (I like to use slightly sour dahi)
image
Blend till smooth. Open blender check consistancy, add another 1/2 cup dahi, if you like.
image
Add salt to taste…

Serve chilled with a sprinkle of freshly cracked black pepper and little swirls of thick dahi!

PS: Avoid over-seasoning the soup, the flavors of ginger and green chilli should be subtle (unlike a raita where the flavors are more robust) and in the back ground!
