Boondi Raita

My daughter had gone to her friend Saloni' place to play and she had lunch there. This was about 2 or 3 years ago. Although I have made this raita before that also, she enjoyed this raita so much at her place and has requested me to make this more often after that.

This is the most simplest of all the raitas. If you have the packet boondi, you just have to mix the salted beaten yogurt to it. If you want add bit if tadka to this or not, (your wish). Garnish with fresh corainder leaves and or some chaat masala, and you are ready to attack this.

My daughter loves it with all the tadkas, chaat masala and little kala namak.... :)

But the only thing is you can't have this sit at the table toooooo long before eating, because the boondi's will get mushy. The right time is about 10 minutes from when you add the yogurt, when the boondi's are soft on the outside and still crunchy on the inside.

Goes with vegetable pulav or any paratha....
