Boondi Raita

Boondi Raita

A Raita is prepared with beaten curd/ yogurt and seasoned with cumin powder, red chilly powder , black pepper powder, coriander / mint or other herbs and spices. There are many varieties of raita such as cucumber raita, onion raita, carrot raita, fruit raita, mix veg raita and boondi raita. Some families like simple beaten curd and flavor with mustard seeds and curry leaves.  I have prepared boondi raita . Boondi is tiny fried gram flour balls. These balls  very easy to make at home or can buy it from market .They are crispy and salty balls.
