Kolhapuri Shahi Bhindi is a refreshing change from the mixed vegetables or paneer in shahi gravy that always grace our dinner tables during any party.

Okra (Bhindi) is usually not the first vegetable that comes to mind when thinking of shahi gravy based dishes. But try this recipe and you will be pleasantly surprised. Okra tastes as good as other vegetables when cooked in shahi gravy.

My Inspiration for this dish

In Mumbai, at my in-laws place, I decided to cook something special for everyone. We decided to go for a Shahi recipe. However, I wanted to try something different. I was tired of using Paneer or mixed veggies as the main ingredients of the Shahi gravy. I decided to try Okra. My family was skeptical about using okra for the Shahi gravy. But, they decided to let me have my way and try the Kolhapuri Shahi Bhindi. Needless to say, they were in for a surprise. The dish was amazing and was loved by one and all.

About Kolhapuri Shahi Bhindi

Kolhapuri Shahi Bhindi is as rich and as appetizing as any flavorful mixed veggies. This dish is creamy and delicious and provides a different take on okra. It is semi spicy but you can adjust the spice level as per your taste.

The rich gravy of this dish is made from nuts and Kolhapuri masala. Serve Kolhapuri Shahi Bhindi with roti, chapatis or naan. You can also serve this dish with plain rice or jeera rice. I would recommend to have the shahi bhindi with Kesari Bhat (saffron rice). The taste and aroma of saffron rice works beautifully with creamy gravy of this dish.

This dish is quick and extremely easy to make. So try this Okra recipe in a Shahi gravy and let me know if this was your tummy to heart moment…
