Many people do not like Okra for its stickiness. But its my fav veggi. To remove the stickiness of okra, while cooking add little lime juice to the curry and mix well. Today I choose and item from Hamari pasand from the restaurant India House Vegetarian Restaurant.So today's recipe is Bhindi Do pyaza. Which means Okra cooked with sliced onions. To add little more taste we add tomatoes. Here is the recipe....
Bhindi / Okra 1 lb or 1/2 kg
Onion 1 small
Green chili 3
Mustard seeds 1/4 sp
Cumin seeds 1/4 sp
Haldi 1/4 sp
Chili powder 1/2 sp
Salt to taste
Tomato 1 medium
Garam masala 1/2 sp
Chopped cilantro 1/4 cup
Wash the okra and dry it with dry cloth or tissue.
Cut each okra into 1 inch length.
Heat 3sps oil in pan and add okra.
Fry till they are 1/2 cooked.
Transfer to another plate and add rest of the oil to pan.
Now add mustard seeds, cumin, and sliced onions.
Fry for few minutes and add chopped tomato.
Cook on medium flame till tomatoes are soft.
Now add fried okra, salt, haldi, garam masala and chili powder.
