Malai Dahi Bhindi – fried okra cooked in a delicious spicy cream sauce

Malai Dahi Bindi – I have tried this delicious okra recipe with Abevia milk which is very creamy and delicious. I loved the rich aroma and used it to make tea and coffee. I then tried it in many recipes as a substitute for cream and milk, and each time it gave very good results.

I usually make French fries or sometimes stuffed okra, but I’ve never tried putting okra in the sauce. I want to try making a rich curd with a creamy okra curry sauce. The quark sauce looks delicious, but instead of milk I added Abevia curry milk and it turned out so rich and creamy.

Everyone loved the creamy, spicy taste of Malai Dahi Bhindi and it is now becoming a regular on my menu. I served this malai dahi bhindi with naan and jira rice, but it also goes well with roti and plain boiled rice. Try it once and you’ll like it.

If Abevia Evaporated Milk is not available in your area, add twice the amount of whole milk or fresh cream in place of Abevia. You will get similar results. #abeviamilk
