Bhindi Masala

on April 15, 2015

A quick and a tasty sabzi, I love the tangy flavor of the tomatoes in this,  My mom used to make bhindi with just dry spices for us (Without onions and garlic) , And it used to taste delicious !! I just wanted to try something new, So I added in some tomatoes and onions, and It turned out to be amazing, It was thoroughly enjoyed by my hubby, and of course Bhindi is the universal favorite of my family 😉 So here’s the recipe.
  • 200-250 gms bhindi (Lady’s finger)
  • 1 medium size onion, chopped
  • 2 medium size tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp coriander powder

  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala powder
  • ½ tsp amchur powder/dry mango powder
  • salt as required
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp kasuri methi/dry fenugreek leaves crushed (optional)
  • Rinse the bhindi/okra well in water. dry them on a large plate on their own or wipe with a kitchen towel.
  • remove the base and stalk while chopping the bhindi. chop into 1 or 2 inch pieces.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions and fry till they become translucent, add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for ½ a minute or till the raw aroma of the ginger-garlic disappears.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and saute till the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
  • Add all the dry spice powders one by one, stir well and saute for a minute.
  • Add the bhindi, 1/2 cup of water, cover and cook till the bhindi is done, Add salt.
  • Turn off the gas, Sprinkle the kasoori methi and garam masala,
