Bhindi Raita is a soothing accompaniment which has this beautiful fusion of crispy bhindi, chilli which is then mixed up with fresh curd. Here is how to make it.
My mom being a doctor has always believed in the idea of mindfully eating good food made using the most enriching ingredients.
With all her thoughtfulness by her side, we were always served a generous share of accompaniments like Kachumber Salad, Chaas or a bowl of fresh curd every day after us siblings returned from the school.
If salad was missed on somedays, she made sure that we always ate curd or varieties of raita with our lunch.
As curd aids digestion, bolsters our energy, increases our immunity, even I make sure that my kiddo eats curd in one form or the other.
And his favourite curd accompaniment is Bhindi Raita, if you ask!
