Khara Boondi

Khara boondi is most traditional spicy snack in south. Prepared almost all the occasions and festivals. Easy to prepare the only thing need a special perforated ladle (Boondi ladle). Khara is a kannada / Tamil word. It means hot & spicy. Suitable to just snack with coffee / tea or have it as an accompaniment with rasam rice etc. I made this now becoz here the weather was getting colder everyday and its nice to have something spicy during the evenings with coffee!!
