Boondhi pachadi

The recipe for this is similar to the ginger pachadi with a small addition. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients :-
  1. Coconut - 3 tbsp
  2. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  3. salt to taste
  4. Curd - 1 cup
  5. Oil - 1/2 tsp
  6. mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  7. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  8. Boondhi - 3 tbsp
First, grind coconut, green chillies into a fine paste. Mix the paste in curd adding required amount of salt. This is pachadi. Take a small pan, pre heat oil add mustard seeds, when it splutters add asafoetida powder and pour it on top of pachadi. While at the time of serving, add boondhi to it and serve.

Boondhi is made out of besan flour and nowadays in all Indian stores, Boondhi packet is available. Just grab it and use it for making this pachadi.

Unique recipe. I am curious - is boodhi considered South Indian? Most south Indians I know don't know about boondhi. I make a boondhi raita with a very similiar set of ingredients, curd, boondhi, ing, salt and crushed dry fried cumin seeds.
