My Notes:

  • Serve immediately after mixing else the boondis will absorb the curd and it will become soggy.But if you like your boondi soft then you can mix and keep it for resting for a while.
  • I love chat masala powder sprinkled than mixing with the raita.
  • You can soak boondi in warm water for 2 mins and squeeze out the water, then use it for raita. This can be done to remove excess oil.
