Dahi Bindi | Masala Mor Kolambu | Sidedish for Rotis/Rice!

After posting the pic on the Sara's Corner page I was not able to post the recipe as the little one nowadays is so active, he puts his feet on the keyboard to type. So today I am posting immediately after he slept:-)

Every weekend its really a tough job for women to prepare a special meal for the family. It should be different and tasty. S doesn't like Lady's finger much but sometimes he likes. My son loves #Paneer and #Vendakkai in any form, so I have also add paneer for him in this gravy:) He enjoyed this happily. My Father in law loves north indian dishes. So this time something different for him.


Ingredients
Vendakai/Bindi/Lady's Finger - 10 - 15 nos
Thick curds/Dahi -2 cups (whisked)
Kadalai maav/Besan - 1 tblspn
Oil - 4 tblspn
Salt

To grind
Fresh grated coconut - 1 cup
Onion - 1 no
Cashews - 6 nos
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tspn(As per your taste)
Green chilli - 1 no(As per your taste)
Turmeric - a pinch
Garlic - 1 no
Ginger - 2" piece
Cinamon - 1" piece
Garam Masala - 1/2 tspn




Preparation Method
Wash, wipe and cut Vendakai/Bindi/Lady's Finger into 2 inches pieces.


Heat a kadai, add oil, add lady's finger and fry till crispy. Sprinkle add kadalai maav/besan and a bit of salt. Let it fry nicely. Transfer it to a plate.
Grind to smooth paste the above mentioned ingredients with little water.

In the same kadai/wok add oil, put this paste and cook till raw smell goes.
Then add dahi and mix well.
Add salt.
Finally add Vendakai/Bindi/Lady's Finger. let it boil once or you can serve as it is. Oil will separate.

This gravy can be had with Jeera Rice, Pulao or Chapathi/rotis. My husband renamed it as Masala Mor Kolambu. 

I have served with Peas and Corn Rice recipe here 

Our family really enjoyed, especially my Father in law.

Notes - 
#You can also deep fry Lady's finger.
#Leftover can be stored in fridge.
#If the gravy is too thick just add little hot water.
