Recipe Notes

Always properly wash okra and pat dry it with a kitchen towel. Rest it for at least 30 minutes before usage to prevent slime in bhindi.

Always use nicely whisked yogurt for preparing the curry. Do not add the curd in its natural form as it might not give a smooth and silky texture to the gravy.

Also add fried okra into the curry at the last or just a few minutes before finally serving it.
