Bhindi Fry that's easy, delicious and nutritious and comes together in under 30 minutes!
- 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
- black pepper 1/2 tsp
- 1/4 tsp garam masala optional
- salt to taste
- 1 tomato chopped
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.
Serve hot with naan and yogurt!
