Bhindi or Okra is an all time favourite in my house hold.I prepare it for main course in many forms.One of the way of preparing okra is this Bhindi ka salan.
This coconut based gravy can be used to prepare Mirchi ka salan too.The recipe is fast and amazingly tasty and can be prepared in gatherings at home.
I prepared this recipe for the first time around five years back.i saw it in a TV cookery show.I have modified the original recipe a bit.The result is still a crowd puller!
