My 54th recipe "Boondi Raita", one of my favorites ever since my childhood. I think I have mentioned it earlier, that I am not a huge fan of Kara Boondi. So, Whenever my mom used to prepare Kara boondi, I would be always eagerly waiting for the next day. Wondering why ? Usually, the next day, she used to prepare this wonderful boondi raita from the left over kara boondi. This time I was well prepared.
When I prepared kara boondi a day ago, I made sure I had enough extras and stored it away safely in an air tight container. And today within no time, I could convert my crunchy boondi into my favorite raita. Though it is a simple dish, it would certainly be a favorite for those who taste it. It goes very well with spicy rice varieties and any kind of Indian bread like chapati, naan, etc. And I could as well just eat spoonfuls of this tasty boondi raita, all alone 🙂
