Dahi ki bhindi / Okra curry in curd gravy

Spread the love

An amazingly tasty recipe, okra curry !!! Just after marriage when my friend told me about this amazing recipe, I didn’t find it very interesting as the first picture that came to my mind was a slimy liquid okra’s picture and I decided in my mind that I am not going to try this slimy vegetable in any case. But to my surprise when I saw it, the dish was very different and was looking very exotic. To my surprise it was not at all slimy and sour curd was giving the dish a very tasty flavor. 

However, this recipe is one of my favorites love to serve it with naan or roti. Last so many days I was waiting to post this recipe, just I was waiting for okra to be seen in Kashmir, today I got the first glair of okra in a vegetable shop and quickly thought of sharing this recipe with you all.  If you are planning to include this dish for some special lunch or dinner then add 1/2 cup grated coconut and 2 tbsp of cashew ground them into a paste and add in curry and get creamy and rich gravy. But for the daily menu, I avoid too heavy gravy.

This is very basic okra curry and simple to make. you can easily include it in day to day menu.

Lastly, I would like to suggest you some more similar recipes from my blog i am sure you will like it…
