Simple Bhindi Fry / Okra Stirfry

This is another simple, easy and quick dish belonging to my favourite tava fry category. The dish is also similar to Bhindi Di Pyaza, but since i use green chillies, I do not use any spices or masala, it is just the way of saying ..... the simpler the better.


2 cups,(~250gms, 9 oz) bhindi (okra), chopped
1/2 cup onions, chopped
3 green chillies,chopped
4 tsp oil
1/4 tsp tamarind pulp
pinch of turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala (optional)

Preparation Method:

1. Wash the bhindi/okra and pat it dry with a kitchen paper/towel or leave them to dry. This is to reduce the stickiness/sliminess while cutting the okra, then chop.

2. Heat oil in a pan, add onions and green chilles and saute for 2 -3 minutes.
3. Add the chopped bhindi and saute.
4. Then add turmeric, salt, tamarind pulp and garam masala (I did not use though) if needed. .
4. Keep the heat at medium to high and saute for 10 minutes or until the okra is cooked.

5. Serve as a side or with chapati.
Make sure the okra, cutting board, knife are all dry before you cut the okra.
Cooking on medium to high heat helps in removing the stickiness/sliminess..
I like the crunchiness of this dish, but if you want the vegetable to be soft, cover the pan and cook.

Preparation time: 15 mins
Serves: 2
