I am here with an absolutely lip smacking appetizer that we have totally crazy about. We had this Boondi Masala (Appetizer)in one of the restaurants many years back. Since then it has become a hot favorite at my place. My boys just love boondi anytime.Serve it as a starter or a snack anytime. Treat your guests and they will be left craving for more. It is so addictive and filling .Try it to believe it.

What is Boondi ?

Boondi is made from chickpea flour and is used to make both savory and sweet dishes. It is added to mixture , and used in making raita , bhel , ladoo , sweet boondi and boondi mithai. Making Boondi at home from scratch is time consuming and we need to have patience.But Homemade is always worth the effort. Replicating Boondi masala at home was worth the effort. It is once of the easiest recipes you can make at home.

What is the theme for Shhhhh Cooking?

The hostess of the theme is Aruna and she is an amazing blogger. I love her Andhra recipes that is on her blog. She suggested the theme Homemade Restaurant Style Food. Do check her Paneer Do pyazaa Recipe.My Partner is Poonam who is so multi talented and a very versatile blogger and youtuber.

She whipped up this amazing Mushroom Do Pyazaa. I made this simple and delicious Boondi Masala (Appetizer).

    Preethi wow what a wonderful lip smacking tasty appetizer or starter. So easy to put Boondi Masala together for parties. I’ve just got some boondi from the Indian shopping. Making it tonight.

  3. Boondi masala looks so delicious and easy to make dish. If we have the store-bought boondi, I believe we can whip this up in a few minutes.

    So much like churmuri but so different texture made with boondi. We mostly have a small pack of boondi at home for a quick raita. Next time, I will whip up this lipsmacking chaat
