Boondi Raita/ Flavored Curd

Boondi Raita/
Flavored Curd 
Hi Friends,
So summer has started here. People are adding more and more coolant to their menus and here comes the easily available, most quick and very versatile comfort food Curd. You can make anything with it main dish to side dish to accompaniments. Here i am with very simple and easy, very quick and healthy recipe of boondi raita which can be whipped in no minutes. I highly recommend to have it with pulao/biryani and any kind of rice dish. You can also have it with chapati/naan etc. My husband like to have it as drink. He ask me to thin it a bit and pour in the glass. Tada a coolant is ready in no time. So play with your own interest and imagination and have it as you want to have it.

  1. You can make it thick or thin according to your choice. Add water in curd to make it more thin.
  2. You can skip cumin seeds if you don't like it. 
  3. If you are skipping cumin seeds then add garam masala or chat masala for flavorful raita.
