BOONDI RAITA

Raitas are the salad with the combination of yogurt and raw vegetables. Boondies are the tiny little gram flour fried dumplings which is served as snack as well as in raitas. This is the excellent side dish that goes well with spicy biriyani or pulao or any flavoured rice item and also with the chappaties too. Readymade boondies are available in super markets but I always prefer fresh homemade boodies. To make the boondi raita even more healthier, these fried boodies are soaked in water and hence the excess oil is drained off. But here I just added the boondies just before serving because I love them to have crispy.




INGREDIENTS FOR BOONDI.

1/2 Cup Gram flour.

Water as per required.

Pinch of baking soda.

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep frying.

METHOD.

Mix gramflour, salt, baking soda in a bowl with required amount of water. The consistency of the batter should be light enough.


Heat oil in a pan. Holding the large slotted spoon above the pan, pour the batter at the time into the oil carefully. They will froth in the hot oil, then rise to the surface. Fry till its done and place them on tissue to absorb excess oil.

Boondies are ready to serve.

INGREDIENTS FOR RAITA.

Boondi as per required.

1 Cup Yogurt.

1/4 Cup Milk.

1/4 tsp Red chilli powder.

Salt to taste.

GARNISH.

1 tbsp Chopped Coriander leaves.

2 tbsp Boodies.

METHOD.

Beat the yogurt and milk to get smooth consistency. Add salt, and chilli powder. Mix well.

Add boondi and mix well jsut before the serving.

Finally garnish with coriander leaves and some more boondies.

Boondi raita is my fav suma and my daughter just loves it. Gr8 to see that u made the boondis at home itself. I generally put the boondis after soaking it in water but once tried it directly and my daughter loved the crunchy taste so do it that way too now at times. I add a little jeera powder and some sugar too to my boondi raita...i love the flavor of jeera and a little sweet taste.
