Hyderabadi Dahi Bhindi | Dahi Bhindi Masala | Okra Recipes

Hyderabadi Dahi Bhindi or Shahi Dahi Bhindi Masala is easy and delicious Okra/ladies finger/vendakkai curry made in onion-tomato and yogurt/curd sauce or gravy. This is easy Okra curry (bhindi sabzi) that goes well with steamed rice, simple pulao or roti/paratha.  Tangy,  rich, creamy and yummy dahi bhindi is real treat to eat.

If you like Okra or bhindi then you should try this easy bhindi curry this is good change from usual bhindi fry or bhindi masala and taste really yummy. Some time back bhindi/okra was so regular at home that every other day I was making bhindi so for a change one day I made this dahi bhindi in Nawabi Hyderabadi style.


I took this photo quite some time back but didn't happen to post it for some unknown reason and now tired after all the Diwali posts though I am cooking some interesting food but not clicking and while browsing my pictures folder I notice this beautiful Dahi bhindi yet to be shared with you guys so here the recipe, hope you will enjoy this as much we did.


Don't think list of ingredients is very long it's just normal ingredients always available in our pantry and I added lot of step by step pictures so you can understand it easily.
