Dahi Bhindi Recipe is a great way to enjoy okra in a tangy creamy sauce. Dahi Bhindi is simply delicious and easy to make.
Okra is a rich source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin B6, and folate. B vitamins slow the progress of diabetic neuropathy and reduce levels of homocysteine, a risk factor for this disease. The soluble fiber also helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.
Here is how to make it.
- 4 tbsp Vegetable Oil
- 1 cup Onion Cubed
- 400 g Bhindi
- 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
- ¼ tsp Hing
- 2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
- 2-3 Green Chilies Slit into half
- 1 tsp Coriander Powder
- ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
- 2 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
- ½ tsp Cumin Powder
- Salt to taste
- 1 cup Yogurt
- 1 tsp All-Purpose Flour
- ½ tsp Garam Masala Powder
Wash the bhindi and wipe them with a kitchen towel.
Cut them into 1 inch long pieces.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add bhindi and fry until they are slightly browned.
Drain on a plate.
Add onion and fry until they are golden browned.
Add cumin seeds and Hing and fry for a few seconds
Now add ginger garlic paste and green chili and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add ½ cup water and cook for a minute.
Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, and salt to taste and cook for a minute.
Whisk yogurt with all-purpose flour and add it to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until oil starts to separate from the sides.
Add fried bhindi and 1 cup of water and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add garam masala powder and mix well.
Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot.
Always properly wash okra and dry it with a kitchen towel. Rest it for at least 30 minutes before using to prevent slime in bhindi.
Use nicely whisked yogurt for preparing the curry. Do not add the yogurt in its natural form as it might not give a smooth and silky texture to the gravy.
Also, add fried okra into the curry at the last or just a few minutes before finally serving it.
