- Trim off the ends of the okra and chop it into 1-inch pieces. Set the chopped okra aside.

- Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add the chopped okra and sauté on low heat for 8 to 10 minutes until they change color and become cooked and softened.

- Remove the sauteed bhindi and keep aside.

- Puree the tomatoes and cashews to a smooth paste in a blender or chutney grinder without adding any water. Make a fine and smooth puree or paste not having any chunks of cashews or unground tomato seeds. With a wired whisk, whip the yogurt till smooth in a bowl.
