Bhindi | Favourite | Lady finger | Masala | Vegetable| Bhindi recipes| Okra types| pakistani recipes

This is my favorite veggie and no doubt its a terrific vegetarian meal. It is a semi dry curry. It is best served with soft chapatis. Here is its recipe :)

Serves: 2-3


Bhindi (Lady Finger)                         ¼ kg
Oil                                                    1 ½ Wooden Spoon (Doi)
Onions                                              1 big (chopped finely)
Tomato                                             2 (chopped)
Green Chili                                        2 (chopped)
Red Chili powder                              1/2 tsp.           
Turmeric Powder                              ¼ tsp.
Black Pepper                                     1/4 tsp.
Ginger Garlic Paste                           1 tsp.
Salt                                                   ½ tsp.

Wash the Okra, and let it dry in a strainer. Slice of tops of Okra & ends (if u want, I personally luv the ends lol) & discard them. Chopped them into 3/4". 

Heat oil in a pan. Fry bhindi until crisp in some heated oil with a pinch of red chili and turmeric powder and set aside. This will help reduce the stickiness of Okra.

Heat the remaining oil, and add the chopped onions. Fry until onions are golden brown. 

Then add garlic and ginger paste, green chilies and the chopped tomatoes, followed by all other spices.. 

Cook until the oil begins to separate and the gravy has thickened.

Add bhindi and keep the lid covered for 10-15min until it is cooked. 

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with hot rotis. :)
