Bhenda Gojju

"They laugh at me because I am different,
I laugh at them because they are all the same"
~Kurt Cobain

Small tender fresh bhindis/ bhend picked from grocery stores and I could not resist clicking these tiny beauties. Today I am sharing here the recipe of Bhenda gojju. Gojju is yogurt based dish from Konkani cuisine served as an accompaniment with meals.


1 cup cut roundels of bhendi/ lady's finger
3-4 tsp of ghee to fry
1 cup curd
2 green chillies, chopped
salt to taste

For seasoning

1 tsp ghee
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
A sprig of curry leaves
Red chilly, broken into pieces

Fistful of coriander leaves, chopped for garnish


Wash and pat dry bhendi. Chop it into small roundels. Heat ghee in pan, add chopped bhendis. Stir fry them till they become brown and crispy. [take care not to overfry the bhendis]. Add salt as they get done and switch off the gas flame. 

Take curd in bowl (if required add water to adjust the consistency, usually this dish is semi-thick), chopped green chillies and salt. Prepare seasoning with ingredients mentioned under seasoning. Pour it on the curd mixture. Once ready to serve, mix the fried bhendis to the above curd mixture. and serve it garnished with chopped coriander leaves.

Tasty gojju is ready to be served as a side dish with rice.

Happy cooking!
