Boondi Raita

Raitas are made with yogurt. Boondies are small, round, crisply fried droplets made from gram flour and are easily available in indian stores. As the name suggests, boondi raita is made by adding boondi to yogurt.

Here is a recipe for making simple boondi raita.

1 Cup Yogurt
1/2 Cup Boondi
1/2 Teaspoon Sugar (Optional)
1/4th Teaspoon Black Salt, or To Taste
1/2 Teaspoon Roasted Cumin Powder
A Pinch Red Chili Powder
A Pinch Black Pepper Powder
Chopped Cilantro for garnishing

Combine all ingredients except the boondis. Taste to see if you need additional salt. Add boondis and refregerate for atleast 2 hours.
Garnish with cilantro, and serve chilled with Parathas, Jeera rice or Pulav.

Note: You can use regular salt if you don't have black salt.
