Crispy Bhindi


Crispy Bhindi 


A healthier version of chips – OKRA! Yes it’s fried, but it’s less fatty than potato and welcome treat once in a while. You can have this lovely crispy fried Bhindi (Ladyfinger or Okra) as a side dish, or just as an appetizer.

Serves:  2-3
Cooking Time - 15 Mins
Preparation Time – For cutting the Bhindi – Depends on your speed, usually 10-15mins.

Ingredients
Bhindi 100 gms
Cornflour 1 tsp
Besan 2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder 2 tsp
Garam Masala ( or any seasoning you like) – 1 tsp
Dried Coriander powder – 2 tsp
Amchoor – 1 tsp
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method
  1. Slice each ladyfinger into half lengthwise.
  2. Then thinly slice that each half, again length wise. So each ladyfinger = 5-6 thin long sliced
  3. Now take all the pieces in a bowl. Add all the spices, salt and Cornflour and Besan.
  4. Toss very gently, so that the pieces of Bhindi don’t break.
  5. Heat the oil in a skillet. Once hot, add the Bhindi in small batches of a handful each time.
  6. Take out on a tissue paper to soak excess oil.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot!
