Boondi Raita Recipe

In a hurry? Rushing to work, or have a party at home and want prepare something quickly to go with rice pilaf or parathas? Think boondi raita!

Boondi raita takes less than 15 minutes to prepare, and it complements parathas and vegetable pulao well.


 Yogurt 2 cups
 Boondi 3/4 cup
 Salt To taste
 Chilli powder 3/4 tsp
 Chat masala 1 tsp
 Black salt A pinch
 Roasted cumin powder 3/4 tsp
 Ginger powder 3/4 tsp
 Coriander leaves 1 tsp



  • Whisk the yogurt well if you are using set yogurt. (In this recipe, I have used stirred yogurt.)
  • If you find the consistency heavier than desired, mix in a few tablespoons of water to obtain the desired consistency.
  • Drop in all the powders and give it good stir. Adjust salt according to taste. Add theboondi just before serving and garnish with coriander leaves.


Kitchen notes

  • Adding the boondi in advance can lead to a sunken/soggy boondi raita.
  • Serve with biryani, veg pulao, or parathas.
