Boondi Raita

October 19, 2007 at 11:00 am 13 comments

Boondi Raita is one of the most popular Raitas (Yoghurt based salad) in Northern parts of India. Also a very popular dish in the ‘salad section’ in many wedding feasts.

This Raita is very easy to make when you have readymade Khara (salted) Boondi available at hand and it teams up very well with Parathas.

I made this quick Boondi Raita, flavoured with Mint and some other spices, over the weekend when we had some guests for dinner. 



Boondi Raita recipe


1 cup fresh Khari (salted) Boondi

2 cups curd/yoghurt whisked nicely, chilled.

¼ -½ cup pomegranate seeds

8-10 fresh mint leaves torn

½ tsp cumene powder

½ tsp sugar

½ tsp Red chilli powder

Salt to taste  

Whisk the curd well.

Add cumene powder, sugar, Red Chilli powder, salt, mint leaves and mix nicely.

Just before serving add the Boondi, pomegranate seeds, and mix well.

Serve immediately with parathas.

    I keep making boondi raitha when I want something different with my usual meal. Its so easy to make and also quite tasty. Although my recipe is quite simple with boondi, curds, salt and sugar it tastes superb. Got to try with your ingredients. Thanks for the recipe.
