Kadai bhindi or ladies finger recipe - I am never ever bored with bhindi ( Ladies finger / okra ) side dishes. Be it Bhindi MasalaStuffed Bhindi or Bhindi Upkari.  Every week we have bhindi side dishes either for lunch or dinner. One such dish is kadai bhindi which is a nice accompaniment for Indian flat breads. Its a nice side dish for rice and curry too. Mixing this kadai bhindi with rice and dal also gives an excellent taste to the meal.
