Boondi Raitha - Deep fried Chickpea balls in spiced yogurt

Boondi has is always a family favorite may it be spicy or sweet. Amma made yummy ones at home and we enjoyed them. Until 25 years I had just eaten boondi, laddoo,sweet boondi ! I tasted boondi raitha only at a friend’s party and completely loved it. Since then I love to eat and make boondi raitha. I’ve got readymade salted boondi for raitha till now(maybe in near future I will start making it too) but this time a friend of mine suggested to get Spicy Boondi as there is no necessity to add any spice later on and that was a brilliant idea.

Avocado Chapathi/Paratha

Avocado is one healthy fruit which is incredibly nutritious and can lower cholesterol. It can be used for beauty purposes too. Today I have experimented a new recipe after only making milkshake and juice till now. Avocado chapathi comes out to be more soft even after few hours of cooking because of buttery texture of avocado.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins Ingredients:
1 avocado (mashed)
3 cups wheat flour
Salt to taste
Water to mix the dough

Method:In a large bowl add mashed avocado, salt and wheat flour. To this add water little by little and make a soft pliable dough. Now  pinch lemon sized balls,dust it in flour and roll into a flat round. Heat a tawa/griddle and roast both the sides on tawa. Enjoy hot Chapathi’s with Curry of yur choice and Boondi Raitha. 

Note: If you are not making it for your kids then you can add finely chopped green chillies, this will give a good spice to the Chapathi Happy Cooking, Aps
