Boondi Raita is a creamy yogurt (base ingredient) paring with crispy boondi (small fried balls made of chickpea flour) and flavored with Indian spices. It can be served as a side dish with Indian breads, appetizers, pulao, biryani or curries.
Many recipes sugesting soaking boondi in warm water to make them soft. they swell a little in size and become soft. Their entire crispiness is lost. Then, they are squeezed off the excess water and then added to the spiced yogurt. So you have a spiced yogurt with the soft boondi melting in your mouth. Boondi, crispy and crunchy, small fried balls will become soft when they are soaked in yogurt. I like to put them on the top of yogurt so they will stay crunchy and crispy longer. I prefer to use plain unsalted boondi. But you can find many flavors of boondi.
