Bhindi Kurkuri ~ Crispy Oka

In my space, i realized that there aren't that many Bhindi Recipes, so when I am trying to look for new Bhindi recipes, I stumbled on this Bhindi Kurkuri Recipe several times. As it looked like deep frying is involved in this recipe, I have skipped it several times. But today I just wanted to try this Crispy Okra for once. As I suspected this is not at all healthy recipe as deep frying is involved to get that taste and texture for this dish. But the taste is awesome, once in a while it is okay to try new dish! I may not make this very often because of the lengthy process involved and that deep frying process lways tests my patience. If you don't mind deep frying, you will appreciate Bhindi in fritters form for sure. Give it a try, Here is the recipe for you, Njoy!

Bhindi / Okara -  1/2 kg ( 1 lb)
Salt - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Besan / Gram Flour - 3 Tbsp
Oil - for deep frying ( 1 cup roughly)

  1. Trim the edges of Bhindi and cut them into half lengthwise. Remove the seeds as much as you can carefully, then chop the Bhindi skin into thin strips. ( i left some of the seeds, as it became very lengthy process to remove all the seeds)
  2. Mix all the spices in a small bowl. 
  3. Add the spice powder into a big ziplock bag. Add Okra stripes into the ziplock bag, close it and toss them in the bag until Okra strips are coated with Besan and Spice powder. 
  4. Heat Oil on the Stove for 5 min. Once the oil is hot, add okra strips to the oil and deep fry them for 5 min until they turn into crisp. Finish all the Okra strips in batches until done. 
  5. Transfer the Crispy Okra into a Serving Bowl and Serve hot with White Rice as Side dish.

Will be back with another new dish,
