Achari Dahi Bhindi Recipe ~ North Indian Sides

Dahi bhindi curry

 I always Love making North Indian gravies as all the gravy have tomato onion based or with butter or cream or cashew nuts in them  to make them rich and tasty. But I also love the gravies which call for yogurt / curd as a base most of the Rajasthani gravies have curd as the base and I just love the taste as you know gatte ki sabzi which is obviously made with curd and I have tried couple of veggies with curd base and we just love to enjoy them with phulkas. So today am sharing a North Indian dahi Bhindi  with achari flavor added to it. We had this gravy with garam phulkas and onions, as for H loves chopped onions with all the north Indian gravies and goes so well. I make ladies  finger 2-3 varieties but totally love the bhindis in curd,  the achari flavor makes this gravy an aromatic open.. Lets move on to the recipe without further ado.
