Save recipe


  1. 3/4 cup boondi
  2. 2 cups whisked yogurt (chilled)
  3. 1 tablespoon finely coriander leaves
  4. 1/2 teaspoon black salt or to taste
  5. 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon chaat masala
  7. A pinch of red chilli powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon sugar (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients except boondi & red chilli powder in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup water and mix well. Refrigerate till you are ready to serve.
  2. Just before serving, add boondi and mix well. Adding boondi just before serving keeps it crunchy.
  3. Garnish with red chilli powder and coriander leaves.

Recipe Tips:

Adding boondi just before serving keeps it crunchy. If you like the boondi to be soft, you can add it with other ingredients before refrigerating. Please remember that if you add boondi before, it will also make your raita quite thick and you may need to add bit more whisked yogurt just before serving.
