  • 3-4 tbsp of oil
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 pound okra chopped to about 1 inch in length
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder or 1/4 tsp regular red chili such as cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder

  • In a pan over medium heat, fry onion in oil until golden brown.
  • Next, add in the chopped okra and continue to stir for 5 minutes or until the slimy "mucilage" disappears.
  • Once the slimy substance is fried off, add in the spices and stir for a couple minutes.
  • Next add in the tomatoes, stir and let the bhindi cook covered on low to medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Be sure to not overcook otherwise the bhindi okra will turn mushy.
