Boondi Raita (Chick Pea Crisp in Yogurt)

Raita is a good thing to have during summer, especially summer in India.

There are many ways to prepare raita and this is one of them. It is easy to prepare with ready made Boondi from the shop, it is also a good side dish to go with rice or Chapati.

2 cups Plain Yogurt, sugarless
1 tsp Cilantro (Chopped)
1 tsp Mint leaves (Chopped)
1/2 cup shop bought Boondi
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt(or to taste)
a pinch of chilli powder
a pinch of roasted cummin powder

1. Whisk together sugar, yoghurt and 3 tsp of water or milk till smooth. Keep aside 1 tbsp of Boondi, mix remaining boondi into yoghurt together with chopped coriander and mint leaves, store in fridge for 20 minutes.

2. Before serving, add salt to taste, sprinkle some chilli, cumin powder. Garnish with the Boondi we took out just now.

Note:Boondi is a fried snack made from chickpea flour and spices. (As shown in picture.)

Cooling and tasty Boondi Raita!
