BOONDI CURRY


                                   Weekends are very lazy. Its like somebody has to drag me to kitchen. Late morning breakfasts followed by late lunch .So I always prefer to make a quick curry or one pot meal.
Boondi curry is one of them --No chopping , less time in cooking .  And most importantly my family loves it. My hubby is a big fan of this curry. 
                                     My mom used to make this curry when she ran out of vegetables. Saute onions with green chilies. Then let tomatoes mush up. Finally add the boondi turn off . Done curry is over.
