Restaurant Style Bhindi Do Pyaaza

P1030837

Hi Friends.

We all crave to eat in restaurant once in a while and wish to make similar food at home. Whenever I like any dish I try to understand the flavors and ingredients gone into it and surely do some ‘Mind Cooking’ and then try making it at home. Many a times I am successful and sometimes I am not.

I had bhindi do pyaaza long time back in a restaurant and I loved it, now this was ages back but that flavor surely had set somewhere in my mind. Recently, I did some mind cooking with this preparation and then tried it in my kitchen and was quite happy with the end result. I was surely very close to what I had liked so thought of sharing it with all of you.

Bhindi or Lady’s Finger/Okra is a vegetable liked by many and this used to be my favorite vegetable during childhood days. During summer holidays when I used to visit my grandmother, she used to pluck fresh Okra from her garden everyday and cook it for me. Over a period of time I tried many other vegetables but Okra surely has a special place in my heart for all the fond memories associated with it.

So this recipe is surely an attraction for all Okra/Bhindi and spice lovers . As far as Do Pyaaza is concerned, Pyaaz means onion, so when the onion is used in a double quantity than normal it is called Do Pyaaza. So, bhindi do pyaaza is a version of Okra with lots of onions…

Ingredients

5 cups sliced okra

3 large onions sliced

1 small tomato

1/2-3/4 cup yogurt

3 green chilies chopped

2 tbsp poppy seed paste

3 tbsp ginger-garlic paste

a mix of ghee and oil for cooking

salt to taste

Spices-

1 tsp kashmiri mirch

1/2 tsp lal mirch

1/2  tsp turmeric pwd

2 tbsp coriander pwd

1 tsp cumin pwd

1 tsp tandoori masala

1/2 tsp garam masala

1/2tsp amchoor pwd

1/2 tsp anardana pwd

Method

Heat oil and add ginger- garlic paste, saute it till the raw smell disappears.
