      This is very good if a bit rich. For the ginger-garlic paste I used 1 large garlic clove and a heaping 1/2 tsp of freshly grated ginger - this seems to work well. Also, make sure you begin the recipe from frying the onions onward in a separate pan from which you may have shallow fried the bhindi, otherwise bitter pieces from the frying process ruin it [gladly noticed while cooking my onion & saved the rest of the dish]. Used 1 large onion, not 2. Also, I think I would prefer less tomato & more okra, however I found the texture of the dish to be perfect! Thanks for posting the recipe.
