  9. Mix in okra and boil for another 2- 3 mins.

NOTE:

  1. You can use curd / buttermilk. But they must be sour. Else it won't taste nice.I normally do it with buttermilk only when i have left over stock to clear off.
  2. Before adding okra,consistency of kadhi must be thin. After adding okra it will again thicken.
  3. If you want you can add garlic/methi seeds/ slightly crushed cinnamon,cardamom etc.
