This is a super quick and famous raita recipe. This is served in mostly all Indian restaurants along with any biryani or pulav as accompaniments. Raita is a yogurt based side dish which is either sweet or savory. It’s served as a side dish with any curry or rice because it acts as a cooling agent plus the combination tastes good. It is very similar to the yogurt dips. There are many varieties of raita that one can make. Roasted Garlic & Tomato Raita and Minty Cucumber Raita are some options you can try.
Boondi is made from chickpeas flour. They are crispy and crunchy and can also be enjoyed as a dry snack. It gets very addictive mind you. This raita is very easy to make and doesn’t need much to prep.
- 3/4 cup boondi
- 2 cups yogurt
- 2 tsp chilly powder/paprika
- 1 tsp coriander - cumin powder
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except the boondi and mix it together. Before serving , add the boondi so that they dont get all soaked up and soft. A little crunch in the raita gives it a better taste.
I serve this raita with Egg Biryani and Spicy Paneer Biryani. Raita is something which KR asks for even if the main dish is not spicy. He just loves to eat raita with everything. The boondi in it surely makes this raita more tasty.
