Bhindi Pachadi/Okra Raita

Bhindi is also known as Okra or ladys finger, is a protein rich vegetables. Eventhough this sticky vegetable was one of the most hated vegetable by kids earlier, i never forget to get them from Indian stores. Slowly my kids started loving this vegetable, watelse a mom need. I'll prepare atleast a dish with bhindis once a week and this vegetable is must to buy whenever we go to Indian stores.One of my recent favourite,nope my family favourite with this vegetable is this pachadi.

This pachadi tastes fabulous to enjoy with a simple pulao or biryani, i served this nutritious pachadi for our sunday lunch with Ambur Mutton Biriyani.Bored of usual onion raita or simple cucumber raita, make this delicious okra raita/bhindi pachadi and surprise your family members.Its 1st sunday of the month and since i belong to a group of friends who blogs on sunday for the event Let's Brunch On Sundays am posting this healthy pachadi.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Vegetarian Side dish guest hosted by Nandoos..

Meanwhile in an another pan, heat enough oil for tempering.

Let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal, add in the slip opened green chillies and curry leaves, fry for few minutes.
