Bhindi Fry

Another everyday dish . Bhindi/Ladyfingers/Okra ... call it any name.... I love the vegetable. This goes into the Simple Everyday cooking..

I have mastered the art of cooking bhindi after a lot of trial and error.


Ingredients :

Okra/bhendi/bhindi - 500 gms (chopped into bite size)

Onions - 1 large (chopped fine)

Tomatoes - 2 (chopped fine)

Turmeric / haldi - 1 tsp

Red Chilli powder (non-spicy) - 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds - a pinch

Method :

Take a frying pan and add a little oil for frying. Add the okra, lower the flame and fry well.

When almost done, add the chopped onions and keep frying till the onions turn soft. Then add the chopped tomatoes and haldi, red chilli powder and salt.

Keep frying so that all the spices and ingredients merge into each other.

when done , this can be eaten with chapati or roti.]

Note: Okra must be washed and dried well before chopping. Keep frying till the sliminess goes.

I usually have a tough time taking the slime from the Okra, since I normally use the frozen cut kind.
The fry sounds good... a pic would have been great.

Anudivya - I dread making okra even though I love it because of the slime.

Tip : wash the okra, spread it on a newspaper and dry it well before cutting. This is what I learnt from my aunt.

The pics are still lying in my hubby's cellphone. I need to get down to uploading them soon.
