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!
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.
