Recipe Source:Chutki Bhar Pyar.

Cooking Time:

On medium heat it takes about 15-18 minutes.


Okra / Bhindi / Bendakaya --- 25 no.
Besan --- 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder --- ½ tsp
Cumin Powder --- ½ tsp
Garam Masala --- ½ tsp
Salt --- Slightly less than ½ tsp (adjust)
Oil --- 4 Tblsn


Wash Okras.

Wipe okras one by one and spread them on a clean cloth or on paper towel. Let them dry. Clean the cutting board and knife, wipe the water and let them dry too.

In the meanwhile, mix 1 tsp of besan, ½ tsp of red chilly powder, ½ tsp of cumin powder, ½ tsp of garam masala powder, and slightly less than ½ tsp of salt (adjust) in a small bowl. Keep tht aside.

Snip the head & tail of okras. Cut length wise. Keep them aside.

Heat 4 Tblsn of oil in a wide pan. Spread oil onto the pan.

Add chopped okras like as shown in the below picture. Wait till they become brown.

Now, reverse them. Fry them till they become brown.

Add enough mixed powder to the pan. Stir fry for 5 minutes till the okras are slightly crisp.

Transfer the fried okras on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.

Have it with hot rice along with ghee. Tastes great when they are bit crispy. My husband liked it very much.
