Dahi boondi chaat is another popular street food in Pakistan/India. The key ingredient of this boondi chaat recipe is ‘Boondi Pearls’. Boondi are tiny crispy deep-fried balls made with gram flour batter, formed into hundreds of tiny pearl-sized balls. It is easily available in Pakistani/Indian grocery stores.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • You can add diced cucumbers if you like.
  • Adjust the spices to your liking.
  • Normally regular white sugar is used to sweeten the yogurt but I use brown sugar or jaggery.
  • You can also use dried mint and dried coriander if fresh is not available.
  • Make sure that the yogurt you’re using is not sour.
  • You can skip the papri and sev.
  • If your raita is too thick, you can simply add some water, buttermilk or milk to get the desired consistency. I added ½ cup of water because I used quite thick and creamy yogurt.
