Boondi ki sabzi is a great Indian dish that can be had for a quick lunch or dinner. It is a belter of a desi sabzi that offers everything we look for in a simple yet powerful homemade plate of food. Boondi is a drop-sized fried ball made of besan (gram flour) that we often use to make boondi ka raita and jaljeera. The sweetened version of it is popularly used to make parasad too. We can trace the origin of boondi all the way to Rajasthan but it is now readily available throughout the country to make different dishes in plain, salted and masala form. Many people also like to make raw boondi at home. Here's how you can make perfect besan ki boondi in your own kitchen.
Moving further, let's see how we can make the very delicious Punjabi-style boondi ki sabzi at home in less than 10 minutes.
