Bhindi-Cashew Masala

The Final week of BM #29 starts today and I have chosen to try out at least three out of the scores of bookmarked recipes in my folder! This particular one is from Suma's Veggiplatter and it has become one of our family favorites. 

This one appears on our dinner table quite often and so I thought I would showcase it here for Day 1 week 4 of BM #29.

Ingredients - 

Bhindi / Okra chopped 2 cups
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomatoes, chopped 1 cupCashews 10-12
Milk 1/4 cup
Salt and Red Chilli Powder to taste
Turmeric 1/8 tsp
Dhania-Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Kasoori Methi 1 tsp
Oil 1 Tbsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp)

Bhindi-Cashew Masala

Method Of Preparation -

Fry the okra in 1 Tbsp of oil until they are cooked and lose their stickiness. Set aside.

Grind the cashews adding milk as much as necessary to make a fine paste and set aside.

In a pan, heat oil and add the cumin seeds. After the cumin seeds are brown, saute the onions until they are golden brown.

Add chopped tomatoes and sprinkle dhania-jeera powder, red chilli powder and turmeric. Let them cook until mushy. 

Add the cashew paste and let the mixture simmer until the oil floats on top. Now is the time to add the fried okra. Mix well and sprinkle salt, garam masala and kasoori methi.

Adjust the consistency as needed by adding more water/milk. Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve hot with Rotis.
