Boondi Raitha - Easy Raitha Recipes

Today I am posting the recipe for Boondi Raitha. This is a very easy to make raitha,when boondi is readily available in hand. This raitha goes well with any pulao, biryani or paratha. I served this raitha for gobi paratha. I have already posted the recipe for basic onion raitha.

  3. Finally right before serving, add the boondi and mix well.
  4. Garnish with cilantro and serve it.
Raita using boondi
  • You can adjust the amount of boondi as per your personal preference.
  • If the yogurt is too thick, then adjust its thickness by adding required water and whisking it thoroughly. Then proceed with the rest of the steps.
  • You can also add pepper powder instead of chilli powder.
  • You can add chat masala too, for additional flavor.
