Tips and Tricks to make Perfect Raita:
To make Perfect raita, use fresh and thick Dahi(curd). You can check here How to make HOMEMADE CURD, non sour curd is best for making Raita. Make Sure that it is creamy and thick.
Beat the curd well before adding the ingredients
If you are adding watery vegetables like cucumber, pumpkin, onion it will leave the water after adding salt. so it is better to add those vegetables at the serving time.
Once Raita is made it should be refrigerated otherwise it will turn watery. Always serve raita cold.
How to make Boondi Raita Step By step Recipe:
Take 1 cup thick curd beat well, add ½ tsp cumin powder, a pinch of chaat masala, ¼ tsp chili powder, and salt. mix well.
Add boondis mix well(you can soak boondi and then add also), Garnish with coriander leaves and chili powder.
Soaking Boondi in water and adding to raita give soft Bondi raita and also it will suck excess oil. But I like crispy boondi raita so I didn’t soak in water before adding. Its up to you.
