Bhindi Masala Stir Fry

After seeing Madhu's Bhindi recipe, I thought let me make Bhindi for lunch :) and it came out well. The recipe is simple and easy to make. From childhood, I have been a crazy fan of Okra and Ivy Gourd and  prefer to have lot of curry with rotis or rice so, dont be surprised by the quantity of Okra I mentioned and you can adjust it accordingly.

Vishu's Tip :
  • Wash Okra and pat dry with a tisuue or cloth and keep it aside for sometime.
  • Some dont like Okra because they feel it becomes sticky when they start to cook. For this, try to add anything sour in your recipe be it tomatoes, mango powder or tamarind.
Serves 2-3
Cooking and Preparation Time - 20-30 mins


Okra/Bhindi/Ladies Finger - 4-5 cups approx cut vertically
Onion - 1 Large sliced
Few curry leaves
Chopped Coriander - 1/4 cup
Ginger chopped - 1/2 inch
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tbsp
Mango powder/Amchur powder - 1/2 tbsp (increase or decrease as you like it)
Salt to taste

Method :
  1. Heat oil in a non stick pan add cumin, sliced onions, ginger, turmeric powder , few curry leaves, chopped coriander and fry.
  2. Add chilli powder, salt, mango powder and saute.
  3. Then add cut Okra and saute well.
  4. Cook it for 15 mins approx and the stir fry is ready.
  5. Serve hot with rotis or rice.
