Boondi raita, a creamy and flavorful yogurt dip perfect during summers which can be eaten plain or can be eaten with any rice recipe.
Raita as we all know is a term to make dahi chutneys which are in different flavors and different varieties with a common thing in the dish is Curd also called as Yogurt.
Boondi is made using besan or chick pea flour with a savory touch to it. Boondi is small round salty balls made using besan which is a very good snack delicacy as well and we can enjoy the boondi always as a snack or a cup of coffee.
Today in this post I would like to show my readers this different kind of making a raita which is quite different from onion raita or kheera raita.
What is a Raita:
A raita is made by beating the curd well and adding some spices and herbs and mixing well and the main ingredient that is added to the dish is either onions, cucumber, boondi, pomegranate or any fruit that should be mixed into the curd and served.
We even garnish it with some dry spices such as cumin powder, red chilli powder, chaat masala powder to make it more tangy but that is totally optional.
Different kinds of raita:
There are several kinds of raita available and made especially in Northern India like pomegranate raita, fruit raita, tomato raita, pineapple raita and here in Hyderabad we usually make onion raita, carrot raita, tomato raita, kheera raita/cucumber raita etc…
How is raita served:
Raita is a delicacy that is usually eaten along with biryani, veg pulao or plain pulao and is often served with various kinds of biryani recipes.
Biryani is a spicy flavored rice with lots of spices, herbs and to compliment the dish, this simple and light chutney is served along with the main course dish that accompanies perfectly with flavored rice recipes.
Raita in simple terms or in simple language is a dahi chutney recipe mixed with some herbs, spices and some main ingredients like onion, cucumber or fruits.
How to eat raita:
Raita is a plain yogurt dip and if we love to eat it plain and not with any main dish then it is on us to decide as it can be eaten plain or with any main dish and it tastes equally good if eaten directly too.
Boondi raita is a good dish which can be eaten plain without requiring any main dish. It is one of the popular raita recipes made in Northern India and raitas are usually good with roti or parathas too.
I thought summer is the best time to post this yogurt dip as curd is mostly used in summers and what could be a better season than summer. The dahi dips are best with any savory snacks and also give a good relief to the tummy as well.

Kadhi pakora, a punjabi style kadhi recipe into which deep fried dumplings made of besan or chickpea flour are added and served along with steamed rice.
Punjabi kadhi is a quite popular curry recipe made out of beaten curd or yogurt which is the best option to include in our daily meals during summers.
Kadhi can be made in several forms and today I have made it in a punjabi style with slight variations here and there.
Kadhi is just a curry but to make it even more delicious we add besan pakora into it which makes us eat the curry quite easily with rice or roti or paratha.
I usually come across kadhi procedures different in different states of India such as there is a gujarati kadhi, rajasthani kadhi, punjabi kadhi, hyderabadi kadhi and one common thing in all the recipes is that they all are made in curd and besan pakoras added but the spices and ingredients that are added vary slightly.
How kadhi is made:
Kadhi making is a simple process but most of it find it difficult to be made but it is one of the simple recipes made using curd.
How to make pakora:
I have already shared some different kadhi pakora recipes on my blog and also kadhi recipe that is dahi kadhi which I have made in a Hyderabadi style and it is one of the most simple and delicious way of making curry recipes.
Today in this post I have slightly variated the making procedure of kadhi and made it in north indian style and added to it are yummy besan dumplings but we can also make other kinds of dumplings which are healthy and good to taste such as palak pakoda, methi pakoda etc…can be added served.
Unfortunately, there is no video procedure to this particular recipe but would love to add them as I update my videos but I have shared the written recipe with every minute detail for my viewers to read and understand.
Please have a look at the detailed recipe below and do leave your queries and we try to reply as quickly as possible.

How is Mango milkshake made:
It is a quick to do simple shake recipe made using mango cubes in milk and blending them well and it is the most quickest and simplest milkshake made in just few seconds and the most yummiest shake that can be made with very few ingredients.
Mangoes give us lots and lots of memories and make us nostalgic as we all have some strange stories attached with mangoes or plucking mangoes from our neighborhood or through an unknown place.
When I was a child I always used to wait for the mangoes to fall from trees and would run to grab them before anyone could get a hand on it.
Mangoes are loved by one and all and this is the season we always wait to make various mango recipes. I however managed to make a couple of mango recipes and hopefully shall try to update with every mango recipe possible as I continue writing blog posts.
Precautions to take while eating mangoes:
Mangoes definitely develop heat inside our body and since summers too bring in more heat due to rising temperatures, one should take great care before consuming them.

Watermelon juice, a cool and chilled summer drink recipe made using cubes of watermelon and blending them well.
Watermelon is a perfect term used in English language as the fruit is pinkinsh or reddish inside which totally turns out liquid if blended well.
There are several ways a watermelon is termed in hindi such as tarbooj or tarbooz and its a favorite fruit for all the people out there in summer season.
How does a watermelon look like:
Watermelon is always in round or oval shape with a dark green or green in color with few white stripes here and there on the outer side.
The inside of watermelon is just a pinkish watery pulp with small black seeds stuck to the pinkish pulp inside. The pulp is quite watery and turns liquid even with a slight blend.
Ways of eating a watermelon:
This is the best fruit that one can have during summers apart from other things such as coconut water, buttermilk etc…
Benefits of eating or drinking a watermelon juice:
Ramadan is almost around the corner and I would suggest to have chunks of this fruit or make a juice out of it quickly as empty stomach develops more heat inside the body and once we break the fast with dates, this is the best fruit to be followed that gives a big relief to the tummy along with the refreshing drinks.
My today’s post is a very simple and quick refreshing watermelon drink blended in just few seconds and it is ready to drink. Check out the recipe details below.
