Boondi k raita

Raita is very refreshing during summers. They are popular across India especially in North India. One of the easiest  raita recipe is boondi raita . Boondi is fried  gram flour balls. They can be made at home but i purchased it from market as i want to save my time. Raita is generally accompanied with pulaos, parathas etc. Generally people used to soak boondi in water but i like crunchiness of boondi so i didn’t soak them in water and just added it to raita before serving it. But here i am presenting  both methods.
