Crispy bhindi

Who doesn’t love okra and that too crispy ones, they are a big WOW!

Thank you Kamal Kiran for the initial idea.

Preparation time: 15-20 mins

Serves : 2


Okra (bhindi/bendakaaya) ¼ kilos

Onion 1
Ginger paste 1 tsp
Refined cooking oil 2 tbsp
Gram flour (besan/senagapindi) 4 tsp
Rice flour (biyyam pindi) 1tsp
Red chilli powder 1tsp
Salt to taste


Wash and cut the okras into finger length pieces. Finely chop the onion.

In a pan/kadai (Bandli/mookudu) heat oil and add the ginger paste and chopped onions. Fry until the onions turn golden brown.

Add the okra and sauté until cooked and crisp. This will take around 5-8 mins on medium flame.

In a bowl, mix the gram flour and rice flour. Add this powder to the okra and stir.

Add red chilli powder and salt to taste and stir for 2 mins.

Serve hot with Indian bread/ Arabic or just plain hot rice. Crispy bhendi is a great winter option, especially for those who love the okra.
