Bhindi Ki Kadhi (Okra In Yogurt Gravy)

Bhindi Ki Kadhi (Okra In Yogurt Gravy) is a delicious main course dish. This Kadhi is also made with khatta dahi (yogurt) and besan (gram flour) but instead of the usual pakora’s I have added bhindi to it. The bhindi is marinated and then fried before adding to the Kadhi. This gives a crunch and a bite to the dish.
