Tips and Tricks

1) There are usually two ways to soak boondi. Firstly you can simply add it in beaten curd and rest it for an hour. Or secondly if you are in a hurry, you can simply add the boondi in lukewarm water and then squeeze off the excess water and add it to the beaten curd.
2) Beat the curd well until it turns smooth and creamy. Make sure there are no lumps in it.
3) You can add water instead of ice cubes. But if you are in a hurry, add 1/2 cup water instead.
4) Try using fresh curd. It must not be sour. You can add 1 tablespoon sugar if you want.
