Quick Side Dish with Boondi/
Boondi Ki Sabzi
Hi Friends,
Hope you all had wonderful weekend and refreshed to cope up with  busy week ahead. Sunday is my day mostly dedicated to cooking from breakfast to lunch, brunch and to dinner. I do my experiments on this day.I am always in search of quick and healthy side dishes. This dish is one of my rescuer, most quick and so tasty. You can make it crunchy of soft melt in mouth jut with a difference of few seconds you can get crunchy to soft texture. Its so quick that it can be ready within 15 min. So on Sunday i made Chatpate Chole, Cucumber Raita, Jeera Rice,Chapati,  Boondi ki sabzi and salad.
Boondi is used to make scrumptious Raita within 5 min. But as you know i do experiments so nearly 2 years back i tried this recipe and it is always a hit. Nowadays Boondi with spices is available in the markets, so now its more quick to make. So many unexpected guests tasted this dish and reply was "Wow its very tasty, i was not aware that Boondi can be used this way also". It always amaze people. Try it guys it will never disappoint you.
