Boondi Raita, a Summer Relish

Introduced to me by a Rajasthani friend, this tasty relish now accompanies almost every meal. I thought this should figure in my blog before the monsoon sets in. Let the summer end on a cooler note!

To prepare boondi, gram flour batter is forced through a ladle with holes and deep fried in vegetable oil. No you don't have to do all that. Ready-made boondi is available in all local stores.

  • Curd - 1/2 litre
  • Boondi - 1 cup
  • Roasted Cumin Powder - 2 tbsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Beat the curd well
  • Add salt and cumin to it
  • Add boondi and mix well (add more if boondi is sparse)
  • Keep aside for a while till boondi loses it crisp texture and turns soft
  • Serve chilled
