  • 1 cup balkan style yoghurt sour
  • 1/2 a small onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ginger finely chopped

  • Whisk the sour yoghurt in a bowl. Add the chopped onion, ginger and green chilly, salt and cumin powder. Mix well.
  • Open the boondi pack, measure half a cup, put it on a cookie sheet and roast in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes just to make it a little extra crisp.
  • Deep fry the curry leaves (wash and dry them between paper towels before frying) in oil. Remove when they turn crisp and drain on paper towels.
  • Crush the crisp curry leaves on the spiced yoghurt and top it with the crispy boondi just before serving.
