Okra yogurt curry/Dahi Bhindi curry

Yummy yogurt!  This is one of my favorite dish, I serve this curry with hot rice or hot chapathi. You should try this one it is so simple, easy and healthy.

2 cups of yogurt
1 tspChilly powder
2 tsps besan powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric
250 gram of Okra
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp mustard
2 Dried Red Chillies
Curry Leaves
Salt to taste
Chopped fresh coriander to garnish

Remove top and tail of the okra and then cut into pieces. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan; add the okra along with salt and saute till its light golden brown. Cover the pan with the lid for a minute, the okra will tender with the water release. Then keep it aside. 

Yogurt mixture is simple

Take the yogurt, add besan, turmeric powder and chilli powder. Whisk until smooth.Cook the yogurt mixture in another pan until becomes thick, if you over cook the yogurt it will curdle , so remember to keep the flame low.
 Now the add the okra to the yogurt mixture, and remove the pan from the heat. Its ready for my favorite part of garnishing.  In the another pan  heat 1tsp oil, add mustard let it splutter,then add red chilly,curry leave. Pour it to the okra yogurt curry and garnish with cilantro leave.

Your curry is ready to serve.
