Once the bhindi are steamed, it might look slimy yet you don’t need to worry as further, it will tend to lose its sliminess. Next, we have made a curd base mixture where we have combined curd with coriander powder, red chilli powder, besan which will help in thickening the sabzi and also if you avoid adding besan there are high chances of your curd curdling. We have mixed all of these well and kept aside. Further, for the tempering, we have heat oil in a broad non-stick pan and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds and fennel seeds followed by asafoetida and curry leaves. Once, all of these is cooked add the curd mixture and steamed bhindi, cook well and serve dahi bhindi with coriander garnished on top.

I have tried this recipe and it''s tastes good. I don''t say the best bhindi recipe but yes it''s less time taking and tastes different from daily bhindi sabji. So thanks for giving me another choice to prepare bhindi.

   Hi.. we have tried this recipe.. It has turned out well. Please could you let us know what have gone wrong. As the recipe says.. to cook only for 3 minutes, once the curds have been added. I hope you have followed the same procedure.
