South Style Bhindi Fry

I am constantly looking out for variations in our daily meals. I chanced upon a recipe by the Kitchen Foodie and found it was an interesting twist to our humble bhindi fry.

Yes I did make some changes as per my daughters liking for she loves Bhindi. The original recipe has channa dal, methi seeds, urad dal and peanuts which I skipped though u can give it a try. Made this for the second time and was polished off in one go.


500gms Bhindi (slit lengthwise)

1 tbsp jeera

10-12 karipata

2 sliced onions

10-12 chopped garlic

1 tbsp grated ginger

3-4 dried Kashmiri red chilli

1 tbsp sambhar powder

1/2 tsp hing

1/2 tsp turmeric

1.5 tbsp coriander powder



1. Shallow fry the Bhindi and keep aside.

2. Heat oil, add jeera, karipata and red chillies. Add hing and mix.

3. When sizzling add the onion, ginger and garlic and saute till golden brown.

4. Now add your masalas and salt and mix it well to make a dry masala mixture.

5. Add the Bhindi and cook through, adjust seasoning
