Bhindi Aam Masala

28 Apr

So I couldn’t find a recipe which was telecast on Food Food called Bhindi Aam ki katiyal. So I searched around and found some recipe which used raw mango and modified it as I wanted. Turned out reasonably well. Here it is:

a) Cut Bhindi vertically, so the seeds are exposed. Make sure all of them are tender .. and break easily. If they don’t just chuck them away; they spoil the food.

b) Cut and grind Raw mango into a paste. You can use 1 or 2 small mangoes…as a large part is just consumed by the seed.

c) Heat Oil and fry 1 or 2 onions along with all of the following:- Jeera, Salt, Turmeric, Chilly Powder, Ginger Powder, Curry Leaves, Methi Leaves and some Garam Masala.

d) Once the Onion starts to turn Golden and has properly absorbed all of the masalas..add the Bhindi to it.

e) Cook the Bhindi till it starts turning long as its means its raw. Once all the Bhindi turns brown , add the mango paste to it and stir well so the Onion, Bhindi and Mango are well mixed.

f) Add a little more Garam Masala and Chilly Powder at the end if you’d like it a little spicier.

g) Cut 1 or 2 tomatoes in rings and garnish the Bhindi with it. You can add a little coriander on top as well.

h) Serve with Roti or Rice. Rice is probably better. Again make sure that the Bhindi that you use is good..if its not it’ll spoil the vegetable and all your efforts will be wasted.
