Boondi Raita

It was nearing to lunch time and I had to prepare a raita. Bored of making the same old raita’s (yeah I know I mentioned carrots are good for health, but we need a change ;))

I had to rush to the nearest shop to purchase boondi but it was worth it.

It had been a long time I prepared this. What a great change was it in today’s meal!! I know this is not a very unique recipe, but I really wanted to share this small yet special happiness with you.

Do prepare and enjoy!!

Ingredients –

Khari boondi – 1 cup
Plain youghurt (whisked) – 1 cu
Sugar – 1 teaspoon
Red chili powder – ½ teaspoon
Salt – to taste
Coriander springs (chopped) – to garnish
Jeera Powder (Cumin Powder) – a pinch to sprinkle over the raita

Procedure -

  • Soak the khari boondi in water for 4 – 5 minutes.
  • Drain out the excess water and mix these with the whisked yoghurt.
  • Add sugar, red chili powder and salt. Mix gently.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander springs and sprinkle jeera powder over it.

Tips –

Do not soak the boondi for than 5 minutes or it will become too soggy.
You may add pepper powder instead of red chili powder.
Finish this dish immediately as if stored it would become soggy and wouldn’t taste good.
