Boondi Raita


Boondi / fried gram flour balls in yogurt with spices and coriander leaves



Be it a pulao or biriyani, a raita is essential to make it a complete meal. This boondi raita is a simple and quick raita that goes well with your pulao, biriyaniparatha or any spicy curry. For making this raita, boondis - which are tiny fried balls made of gram flour and spices, are added to a beaten mixture of yogurt and spices. Some love their boondi raita to be crunchy, so serve immediately after adding the boondi to the yogurt. But if like softer boondis, let the boondis soak in the yogurt and spices for sometime. In case the boondis are oily, soak them in hot water for 5 minutes, then squeeze well and add to the yogurt. Serve with paratha and pulao/briryani.
