  • 1 kg - fresh bhendi (okra)
  • 2 - medium onions, finely cut
  • 1 - large tomato, cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp - Ginger paste
  • 2 tsp - coriander powder
  • 1 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • 3 tsp - Red Chilli powder
  • 1 tsp - Jeera seeds
  • Coriander leaves, washed and finely cut
  • 3 tbsp - oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • How to Make Punjabi Bhendi Masala:

    1. Clean the bhendi with a moist cloth and cut into 1" pieces.
    2. Make a slit in each of the pieces for the masala to get absorbed.
    3. Heat oil in kadai and add jeera seeds. Add the cut onions and fry for some time till they become golden brown.
    4. Add the tomato pieces and let them cook.
    5. Add ginger paste and coriander powder. Fry for a minute.
    6. Add turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Mix to get a homogeneous mixture which leaves out the oil.
    7. Add the okra pieces to the mixture and let them soak in the masala.
    8. Cook on medium flame. Stir in between so that the mixture does not stick to the kadai. This may take 10 minutes.
    9. Add salt and garnish with coriander leaves.
