Bundi Raita

Boondi raita is one of the most basic raita which is served with paranthas or pulavs in North India. It is a must in all their functions , weddings or any special occasion . Crispy readymade boondis and little sweetish  thick curd make a yummy combination with any spicy dish.
 It can be made within minutes if you buy ready made plain boondi packet.
Sometimes I use only boondis in the raita whereas sometimes I add few pomogranate seeds and moong sprouts which makes the raita more delicious and nutritious.


Ingredients :

2 cups .....................plain crispy boondi
1big bowl....................plain curd
1/2 cup ........................pomogranate seeds
2 to 3 tbsp......................powdered sugar
1 tsp.............................dhana jeera powder
salt



Method :

Add sugar and salt to the curd and mix it well.
Add pomogranate seeds to the curd and chill it in the fridge.
At the time of serving add boondi and mix.
Serve garnished with dhana jeera powder and / or coriander leaves.
You may also add some parboiled moong sprouts along with pomogranate seeds in curd.
This make the raita tasty and healthy too.
