Achari Bhindi Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 05:12:00
Sometimes, it is very likely for us to go blank and ponder over the menu in search of different gravies to satiate our taste buds. So today I thought of publishing Achari bhindi which goes on well with puri, chapathi, naan roti and so on. As the name itself suggests achari bhindi, here we use achari Masala. In Hindi the word achari stands for pickle, hence we prepare this curry using the spices which are used in preparing pickle. Instead of ladies finger ( okra ) you can replace it with paneer ( cottage cheese ) and prepare the same achari paneer masala which I will be publishing shortly.

Kitchen Masti Points.

  1. You can add 1 tsp of sugar along with the other spices for a slight sweetish tinge.
  2. Instead of adding chopped tomatoes, you can even add the tomato puree. In this case, the gravy will be in liquid consistency.
  3. Add red chilli powder for a spicer gravy.
  4. 1 tbsp of butter may be added to enhance the taste of the gravy.
  5. You can also add chopped onions as I have done in this recipe.
