Boondi Raita - How to make Dahi Raita with Boondi

Boondi Raita is another raitha which I personally felt the tasty raitha I have ever had. I love it with flavoured rices, Biryanis, Bagaras. Mixed Raitha, Onion Raita are the common raitas we usually get with Biryanis in restaurants. I love Pineapple Raitha also but with less spicy flavoured rices. We will talk about Pineapple Raita later but for now, let us get into the making of Boondi Raitha which is a quick and an easy accomplishment.
