Beef and Okra Curry - Bhindi Gosht

Bhindi gosht is a simple Pakistani dish made with beef and okra in a tomato sauce with wonderful spices.  This beef curry is also sometimes called a beef and okra stew.

This comfort food dish brings together the warm flavors of cinnamon, cumin and curry combined with tender beef and creamy okra.

Bhindi is called okra in English (also called Lady Fingers) and is a vegetable which has a sweet, grassy flavor that has a unique juicy, creamy and slightly slimy texture.

You can use fresh or frozen okra for this dish because fresh isn't always available. However, this dish tastes best with fresh okra.

You can easily turn this dish into a okra curry recipe on its own and make it a vegetarian meal. If you want to omit the meat, simply add more okra to the recipe and serve it over rice or naan.
