Bhindi Fry(Microwave Method)

My recipe today is a yet another version of Microwaved Potato fry recipe that I had shared a few weeks ago. Today I am sharing a similar recipe with Bhindi/Okra.

The important thing about cooking bhindi/bendekaayi/okra is to ensure that the gooey sticky texture in the interiors of the Okra does not remain. The below recipe is Bhindi fry using a microwave and I use buttermilk or curd to remove the stickiness of the okra.

The bhindi fry goes really well with either rice and dal or Roti 🙂 Do give it a try.

*If you need more crispier okra’s then microwave for 3-4 minutes more after adding curd.

*The buttermilk / curd helps in removing the stickiness of the bhindi.
