Ingredients

4 cups ladies finger (bhindi) , chopped into (11/2") pieces
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1 tbsp urad dal (split black lentils)
2 whole dry kashmiri red chillies , broken
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)

To Be Ground Into A Paste
1 tbsp freshly grated coconut
1 tbsp broken cashewnuts (kaju)

Method
  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a non-stick pan and sauté the bhindi in oil until they are done. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.

  3. When they crackle, add the red chillies and fry again for a while.

i could not believe my eyes that bhindi can be made so tasty and innovatively. dahi bhindi is very tasty...different from normal bhindi that we make. i make this subzi for everyone in the house not just for my father in law (has high bp). the paste uses poha instead of only coconut so healthy na!
