Easy Bhindi

I love Bhindi. I also love it most when it is cooked in the typical high-calorie style: fried. My grandmom devised this recipe for my dad when he was battling cholestrol and it has bumped fried bhindi to the number 2 slot.

What you need:

  • Bhindi (okra) – 400 grams, diced into small pieces
  • Tomato – 1 large, diced into little pieces
  • Green chillies – 2, chopped as big as your bhindi pieces
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • That’s all really!!

What you need to do:

  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick kadhai.
  2. Throw in the bhindi and green chillies and stir on high flame till all the bhindi becomes coated with a sheen.
  3. Add the salt, tomato, and saute for a minute.
  4. Lower flame, cover and steam for 10 mins. Stir occasionally.

Best served with crisp hot phulkas.

Servings: 2

  1. nah. not if u don’t overcook it. leave it on, add too much tamatar, and you have a gooey situation. also nonstick pans help.
