Dahi Bhindi

Dahi Bhindi – दही भिन्डी; Always we eat Bhindi (Okra) in dry form; in my family from my childhood I am hearing one thing about Bhindi “don’t put tomato, they will spoil the dish only onion is okay”. When I heard about the name dahi bhindi, only the above sentence come on my mind; how it was made, is it tasty, are okra is fine in shape, it’s not become sticky? Lots of questions, but when finally I see it I am surprised and after tasting found in love of this form of okra dish. Then after that I am usually making it at my home.
