Kadai bhindi

I learnt this recipe from Vah chef’s video and tried this for first time, the outcome was very nice. I made one or two changes to suit my taste . The main draw back is,too much usage of oil!! Though I tried to use less than I saw in the video,deep frying the Bhendi is too much for me. One can just fry with less oil in kadai itself,but deep frying really made its stickiness  Zero. Its your choice! Goes well with roties and variety rice too!

  63. Hey Raks..I have been a great admirer and follower of u r blog..Tried ur bhendi masala ..Would like to add a little note on frying the bhendi..Instead of deep frying or using a more oil to fry bhendi we can microwave for 4 mins then saute it in tawa..it reduces the oil usage ..

  77. Hi raks,

    I tried your bhendi masala yesterday and my family loved it. Just when I was cooking, my friend came and I gave little sample to her too and next day she called me to ask for the recipe as her family too loved it. Very simple recipe yet great taste. How do you take pics this amazing?
