Dry Bhindi Masala

Bhindi (Okra / Ladyfinger) is undoubtedly my favourite vegetable. I can eat it anyday ! Here is the easiest preperation of Bhindi with minimum ingredients.No gravy, no tomatoes. Simply dry Bhindi.


Here’s the recipe.

  • Take about 250 gms Bhindi. Wash it and cut it into medium sized pieces, like so.

  • In a kadhai or pan, heat about 1 tbs oil. Once heated, shallow fry the bhindi.

** Do not cover the Kadhai as this will help prevent stickiness of Bhindi**

(I had added 3-4 pieces of Kokum in it as I had run out of Amchur powder. You can skip Kokum and add Amchoor in the masalas instead.)

** Kokum can be replaced by Tamarind too.

  • Cook this for approx 5-6 mins till it gets some color.

  • Now remove the bhindi from the kadhai and keep it aside

  • In the same pan, heat about 1.5 tbs oil. Once heated, add 1tsp cumin seeds. Let it splutter.

  • Into the pan, add 1 medium sized onion finely chopped.

  • Cook this for next 5 mins, till the onion turns brown.

  • In the meanwhile, in a bowl, mix below spices-

  • 1tsp Kashmiri Red Chili Powder, 1 tsp Coriander Powder, 1 pinch Asafoetida, 1tsp Cumin powder and salt. Mix it well.

  • Add this spice mix to the onion.

  • Mix it thoroughly and cook this for next 8-10 mins. Now into this add the Bhindi we had kept aside. Cook till for next 5-6 mins more.

Dry Bhindi is ready to be served

This is a very simple preparation and it sure tastes heavenly. Do give it a try!
