A double-tangy subzi with the combined sourness of curds and tomatoes, perked up with a wide assortment of seeds and spice powders, which give it a super peppy flavour and aroma too. The ladies finger is sliced and shallow-fried before preparing the gravy, so that it has a nice texture and does not end up gooey, which sometimes happens when you add bhindi to a dish without sautéing it properly. Allow the Achaari Dahi Bhindi to boil for a few minutes after adding the bhindi so that it soaks in the flavours of the curd mixture. Serve hot with any roti of your choice.

I was so bored of having that same bhindi subzi everytime and then i came across this recipe. The curds lends an amazing flavour to this subzi. It is delicious. The achaari flavour is also complementing the bhindi in a really good way. Over all a nice recipe to give a try.
