Dahi Boondi

Boondi is an Indian snack food made from fried chickpea flour. Boondi is popularly used to prepare raita in North India. Boondi raita typically contains curd (plain yoghurt), boondi (which has been soaked in water to make it soft, then sieved) and seasoning of salt, chilli, and other spices. It is eaten as a side dish with pulao or any other meal. This is one thing which I eat almost every second day,my meal can never complete without dahi-boondi 🙂
