Do not know if it was all the Bhindis or the genes or a combination of both. As a child whenever Amma used to feed me Bhindi it was with the guarantee "If you eat your bhindi you will be excellent in Maths"
Some of them worth mentioning are Pav Bhaji, Paneer Bhurji, Bhindi Sabji, Fresh Pineapple Curry ,Homestyle Dal variations, Sambar ,Peanut and Garlic Chutney,Spinach and Tomato Raitha and Gajar ka Halwa Also a few recipes to classic meat and poultry can be altered with Potato or Paneer like Pork Vindaloo and Tandoori Spiced Roast Chicken
This Indian style Okra recipe goes really well with boiled rice ,chappathi,appam,idli ,dosa etc. a Lady'sfinger is that couple of years back ,I saved a few seeds from some mature lady's finger pods and they have been sooo loyal to me that year after year,all I have to do is put a nice foundation of soil and hide these seeds inside it and after a few days ,lo & behold - they break apart the soil and sprout back into life as if they were desperate enough to see me
Also, I had my doubts about how it would turn out and how it would taste with rotis or naans. Dahi Bhindi, Okra/ Lady's Finger in a Yogurt Based Sauce, I have been wanting to try this dish for some time now, but every time, I put it off for some reason or the other
Usually this recipe is reared by deep frying it in oil which turns the vegetables very crispy however those who don’t like to have oily food can also try preparing this dish in an Air fryer and can easily enjoy dishes like these which need to be fried for a great crisp and taste
