Boondi Raita Recipe – Ingredients
Recipe Category: Sidedish | Recipe Cuisine: North Indian
Thick Curd(Yogurt) – 1.5 cups
Kara Boondi – 1/2 cup
Red Chilli Powder – 3/4 tsp
Roasted Jeera powder / Chat Masala Powder – 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder – 1/4 tsp(optional)
Coriander leaves – few chopped finely
Salt – to taste
- Get all your ingredients ready.Whisk yogurt till smooth.Add all other ingredients to the whisked yogurt and give a quick stir.Garnish with the remaining roasted cumin seed powder, coriander leaves and red chilli powder and serve chilled.
Serve chilled with hot parathas or any pulaos!
- 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.
