Gujarati Bhindi Kadhi

One of our friend Chithra suggested me to try a Gujarati-Rajasthani Restaurant called Mathsuk's at T.Nagar. The day after she suggested i went there, as i love Rajasthani - Gujarati Food's. The Restaurant offered lots of sweets and snacks, of the Rajasthani and Gujarati state. Needless to say, the stuffed parathas, Kadhi's were so Good and the price was also reasonable. and there i tasted this Bhindi Kadhi, it tastes like our Vendakaai Morkuzhambu.I liked it so much and wanted to try at home, and its here now.
