Stir Fried Okra | Bhindi Fry

Stir Fried Okra

With very few ingredients & spices yet very tasty okra.This is one of my mom’s delicacies which I savor the most.  This is one of my favorite vegetables since my childhood. The very moment it is prepared, I used to pick some and start gorging before it is actually served for lunch or dinner. I’m sure this is an absolute treat for your taste buds who love okras just like me. I know most of them don't like this veggie because its sticky and sometimes messy to prepare. But try it this way I'm sure you will like it.

  • I have used more oil here so that the okras don’t stick to the pan. You can reduce if it is more before the spice powders are added.
  • Don’t add water at any stage the okras will get cooked in the oil itself.
