Bhindi masala (spicy okra) and an Award

For quite some time, i wasn't posting much, as my camera was out of order :), but now finally bought a new one. So here's ladyfinger, or okra, or bindi as we call it. I came to know that it's also called okra(n its a very popular name for it), only after i started blogging....
Okra, unknown to common cooking is a surprising versatile vegetable. It also holds a high place in the nutritional charts for its fibrous content and other medicinal benefits. After blogging only ,i came to know there are a lots n lots of making this veegie(never knew could make gravy one too), 'll try them too soon one by one, but here the basic dry one which we regularly make in our kitchens....


300 gms lady finger
2 onions thinly sliced
2 green chillies finely chopped
1 tbsp. coriander leaves finely chopped
2-3 flakes garlic, peeled, crushed
1 tbsp coriander powder
2-3 pinches turmeric
1 tsp amchoor(dried mango)powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp. oil


Cut lady finger into 1” long pieces.
Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a nonstick pan.
Add ladyfinger, stirfry till it is crisp.
If overdone it will turn blackish, is underdone it will be sticky.
Remove from pan, keep aside till required.
Heat remaining oil in same pan, stir fry onions till golden brown.
Add all other seasoning, stirfry for a few seconds.
Add ladyfinger, salt, stir and pour into serving dish.
Garnish with chopped coriander.
Serve hot and crisp with roti, rice or parathas.

To clean knives, hands, etc. which are soiled with the sticky fluid of this vegetables, simply rub a used lemon peel over them. Wash off with regular detergent and scrubber.
