Boondi Raita

Curd or yogurt is a lactic fermentation of milk. It is esteemed for its smoothness, its pleasant and refreshing taste. At our home we have some amount of it stored in refrigerator all the time and use it either by making buttermilk of it or directly. Sometimes we try it even different way,when it come to try it different way there are so amny options, may be some other time i ll discuss that too... here the way I tried it just yesterday ...

1 cup Yogurt or dahi
3/4 cup Boondi
Cumin( jeera) Powder 1 tsp,
Red chilli Powder 1 tsp,
Salt to taste,
Coriander leaved to Garnish.
Take yougurt in a bowl and shake it well to make smooth consistency of it without any lumps.
Mix all the above listed Ingredients in it ,and garnish it with coriander leaves.
Serve Chilled.

Its a perfect side dish to enjoy with your favourite dish (rice, chapti-bhaji,biryani, thepla..... )
