Bhindi khel

Long strips of bhindi on the platter looked more appetizing, to my husband, than the slimy vegetable which is at times just boiled and served with pepper and salt for a healthy dish. Well tasty sometimes is not healthy too. The oil required, to toss these slices of lady’s finger in masala and onions, is quite a bit. Once in a way to pamper those taste buds would do no harm, is what we say to avoid that guilt coming in the way while indulging in good food.


  • 500 gm lady’s finger/bhindi
  • 2 large onions (slice lengthwise)
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¼  tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • ½  tsp amchoor powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil
  • A few coriander leaves


  • Wash and dry wipe the bhindi with a clean cloth. Slit bhindi in four.
  • Heat oil in pan and add the cumin seeds, splutter and then add the bhindi. Fry for 5-7 minutes.
  • Then add turmeric powder, garam masala, coriander powder, amchoor powder, salt, red chilli powder and onions.
  • Fry this well for few minutes and cover to cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.

Preparation Time: 25-30minutes

Serves: 4
