Okra are high in fiber,vitamin A,vitamin c and Magnesium etc. So try to make it as a part of your regular diet.
I’m too lazy to wash and clean okra. if you cook freshly cut okra, the recipe will become gummy. but don’t worry, add 1 tbsp of yogurt and the gum gets disappeared. The best way i suggest is to clean and cut them before night. pat them dry before you cut. after cutting them into pieces spread them over the paper or a dry cloth overnight. you won’t get any gum while cooking on the next day. please don’t ask me the physics or chemistry behind it. you can also keep them in refrigerator after cutting.
Here in this recipe i told to whip the yogurt before using it. if you don’t whisk it will curdle. however there would be no change in the taste. but the texture of the bhindi korma will be odd. try and enjoy the recipe.
