More Bhindi recipes

13 Feb

I’ve been learning to cook Okra/Ladyfinger/Bhindi in different ways these days. They’ve all come out OK. Nothing great. Here’s my list:

  • Dry Alu Bhindi
  • Besan (Gram flour) wali Bhindi
  • Bhindi Masala
  • Bhindi raita

The dry Alu one came out quite well and I blogged about that previously. The next 2 are very very similar, except that you end up using roasted gram flour as a topping, coating each Okra. Mildly different taste.

The Bhindi masala one is quite similar too, except that I stir fried a little onion and tomato and then added the Bhindi to it. Came out okay I guess, but it was too dry – the “masala” recipes should usually be a little damp. Maybe next time.

The Raita is a great side dish, it is very very simple too – soaking precooked Bhindi in your yoghurt of choice – I used cashew based Forrager yoghurt -it came out really well. Obviously these days I’m making a big push towards going fully vegan, at least in the USA (where dairy is a terrible industry) so I’d use non-dairy milk instead.
