Boondi Raita (Boondi Ka Raita, Dahi Bundi) is a healthy and delicious North Indian accompaniment made using yogurt and boondi (small fried balls made of chickpea flour). This raita comes together in under 5 minutes and pairs very well with Indian meals. Here is how to make it.
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 to the raita.Store the boondi in the refrigerator after opening the packet to increase its shelf life.Whisk the yogurt using a balloon wire whisk. It makes it smooth and creamy.Increase or decrease green chilies and chili 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. Keep in mind that the raita will thicken with time as the boondi will absorb the liquid.To make this recipe vegan, use vegan yogurt and milkThis recipe can be easily halved, doubled, or tripled.
