Vendakkai Kadhi | Okra Kadhi

Vendakkai Kadhi
Kadhi is a yogurt based dish from India. Chickpea flour is usually added in the preparation of Kadhi in North India. I have replaced chickpea flour with chana dal | Kadalai paruppu. Also added shredded coconut to this Kadhi. It can be served with rice or roti. Use sour home-made curd for preparing Kadhi. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Indian Gravy Vendakkai Kadhi | Okra Kadhi.
