Today I was bit confused with cooking for the lunch. Had to think a bit and then remembered of leftover boondi  which was simply laying in my kitchen pantry. Whenever I used to see these boondi packet, always had some or the other plans with it. Most the time it was raita. So today I made my mind to make something different out of boondi and that was this delicious boondi ki subzi. Truly guys, I liked it so much that next time I will purchase the boondi packet only to make this subzi. Do try it once and enjoy with parathas or simply goes well with simple dal bhaat.
