Vendakkai Thayir Pachadi Recipe / Bhindi Raita / Okra Raita

Vendakkai Thayir Pachadi Recipe

Vendakka Thayir Pachadi is a very easy sidedish that you can make.I have always been thinking to try and post this but somehow these raita recipes takes a backseat.As onam is nearing I thought to share this easy raita recipe. I love ladies finger in any form, with curd I know I will love it for sure and I did :) Hubby too liked it and gave a big thumps up as he was not convinced when I said am going to make Bhindi Raita but then when he tasted it, he loved it too.

This pairs up well with rotis and for rice with sambar and poriyal.

My Notes:

  • Whisk the curd well.
  • Wipe it off with tissue paper well before slicing, this is one the keys to reduce slimminess.
  • Slow cook for even roasting and to avoid burning.I used my cast iron skillet.
  • I reserved a little of the tempering for garnish which actually was good while eating as the crunch was there.
  • You can even deep fry bhindi.
