Dahi Bhindi

Dahi bhindi recipe, with step by step pictures, creamy yogurt based gravy using ladies finger, pairs well with roti, jeera rice or plain basmati rice. I have tried this Dahi bhindi recipe for a cookery demo here in Singapore. It was pretty much loved by the participants who attended the demo. A creamy gravy loved by everyone at home, paired it up with Plain basmati rice. Generally bhindi | ladies finger is loved by everyone at home. We make South Indian style Vendakkai curry or Vendakkai sambar or mor kuzhambu with vendakkai. If i want to make a North Indian version, i always make Kadai bhindi only. This Dahi bhindi is a must try recipe using ladies finger.
