Ingredients

  • 1 cup Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Boondi
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Green Chilli Chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Mint Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Fennel Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder

Instructions

  1. Whisk the yogurt till smooth.

  2. Add milk and mix well.

  3. Add boondi, green chilli, salt, roasted cumin powder, dry mint powder, fennel powder and red chilli powder and mix well.

  4. Transfer the raita in the serving bowl.

  5. Garnish with fresh coriander.

  6. Serve chilled.

Recipe Notes

Whisk the yogurt using a balloon whisk. It make it smooth and creamy.

Soak the boondi in hot water for 5 minutes to get rid of excess oil before adding it in the yogurt.

Boondi smells funny when kept for a long time since the oil in it gets spoiled over time. Make sure to check it before adding it in the raita.

Increase or decrease green chillies and red chilli powder according to your taste.

Adjust the consistency of the raita according to your liking. I like my raita thick but some people like it thin and runny. Take your call on this.
