BHINDI DO PYAZA| OKRA AND ONIONS CURRY

BHINDI DO PYAZA| OKRA AND ONIONS CURRY

IMG_6844
Bhindi Do Pyaza is a very yummilicious recipe my mother makes. Do pyaza means using lots of onions in the recipe. The unique flavor and texture of this curry comes because of the onions added in two different steps. First in the beginning, and other in the last.
This is one of my favorite recipes. I love Okra since my childhood. My mother cooks it in different ways.My son also loves bhindi or Okra and often asks me too cook it.
