Of all the raita recipes, boondi raita is my favourite. It is a great accompaniment for North Indian food and is possibly the quickest raita to make. I usually make this raita if I have to make a raita for guests because you can’t go wrong with this raita, most people love it.
I usually make beetroot raita, veg raita, or fruit raita at home because of their nutritional value. I don’t make boondi raita as often as I would like because boondi is fried. But on some days when I don’t want to spend much time chopping vegetables or fruits, or just want to satiate my taste buds I make this raita. For me it is soul food, like dahi vada. There’s something about these two dishes; most women like them. Me, my mother, and my mother-in-law like dahi vada and raita. Not so much my hubby or kiddo.
So here’s the super simple recipe of my favourite raita.
