  • Bhindi (cut into 1/2 inch slices) - 1/2 kg
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Ajwain - 1/2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1 tsp

How to Make Fried Bhindi

  • Place the cut okra in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate and cook on 'high', uncovered, for 4 minutes.
  • If necessary, cook the okra in two or three lots.
  • No salt is to be added now. This will ensure that the okra is cooked, but without stickiness, and the bright green colour is maintained.
  • Next, heat the 2 tsp oil in a kadai, and fry the mustard, urad dal and ajwain.
  • Add the cooked bhindi pieces. Add turmeric, hing, salt, chilli powders and fry for a couple of minutes till the masalas are well absorbed.
  • Your dry bhindi sabji is ready and looks green and appetising.
