To make bhindi I first sauteed them in little oil till they half cooked. Doing so helps in getting rid of sliminess in bhindi. Then made a gravy using pickled spices, tomato, and yogurt. Combine sauteed bhindi in this gravy and cook on low flame for 3-5 minutes without covering the lid.Dahi bhindi is sauteed bhindi in yogurt sauce which is a spicy, tangy and silky.

Make sure you are whisking the curd before using in the gravy. Whisking makes curd smooth and easy to mix in the bhindi. Bhindi has been my favorite veggie since childhood. I am crazy about this and keep looking for new ways to cook. This recipe I have taken from Tarala Dalal’s Cooking magazine.

  7. To this add the bhindi and combine well. Adjust salt as per taste. Simmer the gravy for 2 minutes. Do not cover the lid.
  8. Garnish with green coriander and serve dahi bhindi with roti or paratha or rice.

Note

  1. Bhindi should be sauteed in a kadhai till they half cooked. To make sure this I did this in two batches. Otherwise, bhindi will remain raw and add them in gravy will not allow them to cook further.

  1. I have never cooked ladies finger with yoghurt, I usually saute them dry in a pan with onions and spices.This recipe looks great so will book mark and try. I was wondering if adding yoghurt would make the okras go sticky??

  2. I love ladyfingers! My grandma used to cook them for me when I was a child but I’ve never been able to find a recipe that is as good as hers (she’s pasted now). Your recipe looks close so I an’t wait to give it a try!
