Bhindi Raita | Vendakka Thayir Pachadi Recipe | Easy Raita Recipes

Bhindi Raita or Vendakka Thayir Pachadi or Okra Spiced Yogurt Dip is one of easy raita or accompaniment recipe perfect with Biryani, Pulao or Variety Rice. Vendakkai pachadi or bhindi raita is good variations from usual raita recipe with crispy fried okra/bhindi, chilled yogurt and with tempering or tadka it's taste wonderful. Not only rice but we can also pair this raita with roti or paratha too it goes well with everything.

In Kerala cuisine too Vendakka Pachadi or Kichadi is popular in Onam Sadya or marriage menu and it's almost similar version this is more of Vendakka or Okra Kichadi and Kerala style okra pachdi coconut is used like in beetroot pachadi which I have already posted. You can follow beetroot pachadi recipe and do make this vendakka pachadi in Kerala style too.


This bhindi raita I make often and it's one of my favorite raita recipe as along with taste it also looks so pretty right? Few people deep fry bhindi/okra and then add to curd/yogurt but I normally don't deep fry bhindi but rather stir fry it well so bhindi becomes crisp and taste like fried bhindi too.


This bhindi raita we can make when we don't want to do so much of cooking just make some one pot meal like biryani in cooker or masaledaar pulao like soya briyani, soya chunks pulao, Tindora pulao, tomato rice etc or even with simple pulao like jeera rice, matar pulao or even kashmiri pulao goes well with this bhindi raita. Or if you cooking for party or get-together or festivals curries like Chole Masala, Dum Aloo, Paneer Butter Masala, Tariwale Aloo Matar etc then simple mild and different raita brings change and also balance the meal well.


Or for lunch box, breakfast, lunch or dinner pair this raita with simple or stuffed paratha so you can see there are endless option of what you want this pachadi or raita to pair with but it goes well with just everything.
