Bhinda Ni Kadhi is a kadhi recipe from Gujrati cuisine. Kadhi is a yogurt and gram flour gravy that usually has vegetable fritters in it. In Bhinda Ni Kadhi, fried okra is used instead of fritters. The gravy is thick and has a sourness because of the yogurt.
Kadhi is actually a dish from Rajasthani cuisine. But the Bhinda Ni Kadhi is the Gujrati rendition of it. Bhinda means okra, so Bhinda Ni Kadhi literally translates to kadhi of okra.
