Unlike any other North Indian gravy recipes, Shahi Bhindi Masala Gravy is prepared by boiling tomato and onion with ginger and garlic. Traditionally the Indian curries are prepared by sauteing tomato and onions with ghee or oil and later crush it to fine thick paste. Basically, onion and tomato sauce gravy forms the base of most of our curries. However, with Shahi recipes, the tomato and onion are boiled in water, before crushing them to the thick sauce. Boiling would help to gain the rich yellow color to gravy as compared to the other curries with dark red color. Also, add a lot of almonds and cashews to make it more creamy and rich.

The recipe for Shahi Bhindi curry is extremely simple, yet few tips and recommendations for a perfect one. Firstly, wash the Okra (Bhindi) well and let it drain and dry out. Then, wipe off bhindi with a dry cloth and cut them, if there is a moisture then bhindi turn to be sticky. Also, saute bhindi on medium flame till it gets cooked completely. Finally, adding cream is optional, however, makes the gravy more rich and tasty like Shahi Paneer.
