Dahi Bhindi

Dahi Bhindi
Hope everyone is having a great summer, its almost to an end and I have mixed feelings about it.Laid back days and long evening will end and pretty soon it would be home works and running around chauffeuring kids to classes.
I do have a post still in works with all the awards fellow bloggers have passed on, I feel honored and thank all of you for the awards, promise to post it soon.

Sanjeev Kapoor has always been a source of inspiration for me, a while ago I happened to win a prize for a years worth of subscription for Sanjeev Kapoor's website, few weeks back while browsing through his website found a great recipe for Bhinidi and boy oh boy it is a keeper.

Tender Bhindi's 1 pound
Green chilies 3-4
Ginger 1 inch
Peppercorns 1 tbsp (adjust according to taste)
Yogurt 1 1/2 cups
R.Chilies whole 2
Gram flour (Besan) 1 tbsp
Oil 1 1/2 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tbsp
Corriander powder 1 tbsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tspn
Salt according to taste

1. Clean Bhindi(lady Fingers/Okra) and cut into 1 inch pieces
2. Grind Ginger and peppercorns into a fine paste
3.Whisk yogurt
4. Fry besan on low heat for a minute and allow to cool.
5. Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan, add whole red chillies,cumin seeds and fry for a minute
6.Add Okra and salt and cook over medium heat stirring frequently for about 4-5 minutes
7.Stir in ginger garlic paste,reduce heat and add yogurt mix well and cook covered for eight to ten minutes stirring occasionally till Okra is completely cooked.
Serve hot with roti's or rice.

Hi, thanks for this unique recipe. But in the recipe, you say to fry besan on low heat and aside but don't say what to do with it. Do we sprinkle it on the okra???
