Tasty and crispy Bhindi masala. Bhendi is my hubby's alltime favourite. This is one veggie (other than dondakaya) that he can eat non-stop. Somehow, I am so bored to write this today... the introduction to why I made this bhaji, how I made this and wt are the facts.....hmmmm
Somedays writing seems so boring... the mind goes blank... and u dont understand wt ur writing here... guess today is one of those days.....so Iam going to keep this very very brief.... so here I jump to the recipe...
You need :
Okra - 1 lbs
Besan - 1tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1tsp
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Wash the bhindi well and dry them on a cloth... Make sure that ur bhindi is completely dry before u start cooking them. Now, snip both the corners of the bhindi and cut them lenghtwise.
In a seperate bowl, mix the besan, garam masala, cumin seeds, salt and red chilli powder.keep aside.
Take a big pan and add oil to it and let it heat well. Put the cut okra to the pan and toss well. Let the okra cook for some time until u see brown patches on the okra. Now sprinkle in the dry masala we mixed earlier, into the pa. mix well so that masala coats well on the okra. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 mins remove the cover and cook til the okra is roasted well.
Your roasted Bhindi masala is ready to be served. Okie this recipe takes a bit more oil. You can reduce the amount of oil and cook too, but it will take a long time.
Serve hot with phulkas or chapatis...:D
