What is Bhujiya Raita?

Even more important question is what is Bhujiya? Bhujiya is a deep-fried savoury snack made with gram flour. It is spicy as well as crispy. Generally, bhujiya is relished with hot chai but when it is combined with some chilled yogurt it becomes bhujiya raita. We always add boondi to our yogurt. But adding bhujiya gives a new flavor of raita. And it takes no time to prepare this raita and therefore this one deserves a try. To add some bite to this bhujiya raita I have also added chopped onions. And to pep up the look and add some extra zing little Kashmiri chili powder (more red less hot) has been used. The only thing to be taken care of is that this raita should be prepared just before serving otherwise bhujiya will get soggy and that is a big no no!

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Bhujiya Riata:

Yogurt/dahi: Fresh, chilled and well-whisked yogurt is required to make bhujiya raita. It should be thick and not runny.

Bhujiya: Bhujiya is available across the globe now. There are many brands making bhujiya. My favourite is Haldiram, so I have used that. In fact, for my raita boondi too I go for Haldiram.

Flavors: Chopped onions not just add some bite to the raita but also give it a great flavor.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
