BOONDI RAITA – Recipe No. 36

Boondi Raita is a very refreshing recipe and loved by almost everyone. It is my favorite raita. As it is very easy to make, so I prefer to eat it every day in summer.

Because of the cooling, soothing and nutritious benefits of curd, every nutritionist suggest eating curd in summers. Instead of eating plain curd, I use to make different raitas and among all raita, Boondi Raita is my favorite.

Boondi are tiny gram flour balls which are easily available in market. To make a delicious Boondi Raita, boondi is firstly soaked in hot water and after that added to a spiced curd mixture. Serve boondi raita with Vegetable Pulao or Biryani.
