About Bendekayi Sasive Recipe :

Bendekai Mosarugojju

Sasive / Sasime is a traditional dish from Udupi Mangalore region ( Coastal Karnataka ) which is generally served with Rice . ” Sasime ” translated in English as “ mustard flavored coconut and yoghurt gravy” . One can make sasime from many veggies and fruits like Cucumber sasive , Tomato Sasive , Mango sasive , Onion Sasive , Pineapple Sasive etc and the chosen one for the day is Bhindi . And the best part about any sasive hardly takes 15 mins to make and just few ingredients from the pantry !!

Sasime is a gravy prepared by adding curd / buttermilk to a ground paste of mustard,coconut,chilli and you could use any vegetable.If you are planning rice and sambar/dal for lunch or dinner, then “ Sasime served like raita ” as a super side makes a wholesome and tasty meal.The pungent mustard seeds in the gravy, gives this dish a wonderful aroma and taste. Try it and you will know what I mean.

Ingredients for Bendekai Sasime:

  • Bhindi / Lady’s Finger – The chosen dish for the day to make sasive is Bhindi . This dish is also one of the great way to empty , few left over bhindi in the fridge .
  • Coconut – You can use fresh / frozen Coconut , gives nice creamy texture .
  • Curd / Butter Milk : Use mildly sour curd / butter milk .
  • Mustard : Hero of this dish, the one that adds unique flavor .
  • Chillies : One can use green Chilli / Red Chilli .
  • Tempering : The regular Suth Indian tadka . You could use any oil / coconut oil for the tempering .

Bendekayi Sasive Recipe with step by step Photos :

  • Wash and wipe the ladies finger. Note that okra should be wiped fully dry, else they would turn sticky.Chop them into small pieces.
  • Heat a  pan/kadai and make a seasoning by adding oil ,mustard seeds, urad dal, broken red chilly and curry leaves.
  • After the mustard seeds splutter, add chopped ladies finger to it.

Turn heat to medium low and fry the ladies finger till brown and crispy.It will take 5-10 minutes.Do not cover the lid or increase the flame. It will make slimy . Turn off the heat and let it cool.

Grind grated coconut, mustard seeds, green chilly and salt in to super fine paste. Add water /curd while grinding to get the consistency of chutney.

Add this coconut – mustard paste to the vessel , add buttermilk/curd to it.

Add fried bhindi to it . Mix well and keep aside for 10-15 mins. Okra absorbs the yogurt and plumps up giving it a unique flavorful taste.

Now, Bhindi sasime is ready to serve. Suits best with rice / chapathi. Give it a try … I’m sure you’ll be addictive with its taste

Points to Note While making Bendekayi Sasive :

  1. You can replace green chilly with red chilly. It tastes equally good.
  2. Adjust the curd / buttermilk according to the consistency and sour level u prefer .
  3. Do not add mustard seeds more than 1/2 tsp, as it will make the curry taste bitter .
  4. Frying bhindi till crispy is very important. It removes stickiness and gives nice taste.
  5. Instead of lady’s finger you can use chopped ( onion /capsicum ) . Roast them too.rest of the procedure remains same
