well as i mentioned previously, raita recipes are the most underrated recipe from the indian cuisine. it is one such recipe which makes every meal or feast complete, yet it does not get the required consideration and appreciation. as matter of fact, even in my blog i have posted very limited raita recipes and i always get side tracked. moreover whenever i start prioritising the requested recipes from my readers, i typically find very less request with raita. i believe most of them believe that making a raita recipe is no rocket science but ignore some small details in it. hence i thought to share this recipe of boondi raita with freshly made boondi.

furthermore, some easy and important tips, suggestions and variations to this classic curd based boondi raita. firstly, i always recommend to use fresh and homemade yoghurt for any raita or yoghurt based recipes. it has to be thick, creamy and also slightly sour to make it an perfect dip recipe. secondly, you may question about soaking the boondi pearls with water before mixing it with curd. while soaking in water helps to remove the excess oil from the deep fried boondi pearls. hence i would recommend not to skip it. lastly, add the boondi pearls just before serving and avoid premixing it before your meal. it may turn soggy and also dissolve in yoghurt and thus may not have the same experience.
