BM #114 Week 2 Day 2 - 

To continue the theme of gravy curries which are popular at home, here is a lip smacking gravy this time with sauteed Okra.

This gravy was loved by everyone at home and we found yet another way to enjoy our favorite vegetable, Okra.

Ingredients -

Oil 2 Tbsp
Bhendi / Okra / Bendakaya 12-15 cut into 2 inch pieces
Dhania Powder 1 tsp
Jeera Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt and Red Chili Powder as needed
Yogurt 1/4 cup
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Kasuri Methi 1 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnish
For the Gravy -

Tomatoes, chopped 1 cup
Cashews 5-6
Almonds 5-6
Ginger 1 inch piece
Garlic 2-3 cloves
Cinnamon 1/2 inch piece
Cloves 3-4

Method Of Preparation -

Blend all the ingredients for the gravy into a smooth paste adding as much water as needed. Set aside.

In a heated pan, add about a tablespoon of oil and saute the chopped Okra until they are golden brown and cooked through.  Transfer them onto a platter to be used later in the recipe.

In the same heated pan add the remaining oil, add the gravy paste set aside in step 1 and cook well until the oil oozes out.

After about 5-6 minutes, add the spice powders (coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder) and salt.

Add about a cup of water and let the mixture come to a boil.

Gently slide in the sauteed okra, garam masala, yogurt and crushed kasuri methi.

Allow the flavors to blend in and remove from heat. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve with roti or rice.
