Bhindi Raitha

I came to know about this dish on Jan 9th 2008,Do u know why that date is very special for me!!It was my 1st date with my hubby in Hyderabad.We went to Tandoor restaurant in Lifestyle Building,Begumpet for lunch then I hubby wanted to have it as its it favourite dish which he used to have it in Mumbai and that dish is not available at Tandoor and he was disappointed this is the story..I just remembered this and wanted to write about it here.

I made it last week to be served with Biriyani and he really enjoyed it.Here goes the recipe.


Okra:5 cups(cut into 1/2" rounds)
Curd:2 cups
Salt:To Taste
Chilli Powder:To Taste
Chat Masala:1/2 spn
Oil:2-3 spns
Coriander Leaves:2 spoons(finely chopped)


1.In a skillet,pour oil when hot put in the cut okra stir so that all the okra is coated with oil,cover and cook them soft,once in a while stir them to avoid the okra from burning.When the okra turns smooth uncover the skillet and fry the okra till little crisp.Now add salt and chilli powder to taste,mix well and now fry for 2-3 mins.Now turn off the flame and leave the okra aside.
2.Beat 2 cups of curd in a bowl and beat the curd smooth and add 1/2 cup water now add the fried okra to the curd and mix evenly.Check for the seasoning and adjust to taste.Finally add Coriander leaves and Chat masala.
3.Mix well and serve it with any flavored rice/Pulka.

I tried to garnish the dish in a different way,recently I'm crazy about learning coffee art and jst tried it here 1st.

Is it looking good???I made a flower using chat Masala.
