Garv se kaho ki bhindi hai

I give the credit of this recipe to Dr. Nandita who gave me this recipe over yahoo messenger today. I was cribbing on how there are only two ways to make bhindi and she asked me to try Dahi Bhindi. Well, Operation Dahi Bhindi was a huge success and it took only 20 minutes to cook it.

300 gms Bhindi
3 tbsp of besan
1 tbsp Amchur powder
1 tbsp Jeera Powder
1 tbsp Dhania Powder
1 tbsp Salt
Quarter tbsp Haldi
Quarter tbsp Red Chilli Powder
1 Cup Dahi (beat it well)
1 whole green chilli
(Jeera and Rai for tadka)

Method: Cut bhindi length wise into pieces. Put it in microwave for 4 minutes in a covered microwave safe bowl. Alternative, you can steam or cook bhindi on pan first with lid on. Now coat this bhindi with 3 tbsp of besan, then spice with amchur, red chilli powder, haldi, dhania powder and jeera powder.

Add one cup dahi and salt to it and let this marinate for a while.

Now, in a non stick pan do tadka with green chilli, rai and jeera. Now saute whole mix till dahi thickens.

Your Dahi Bhindi is ready!!!
