Charishma's Very Tasty Bhindi Masala

READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat oil in a wok.
  • Once hot, toss in the cumin and mustard seeds. Allow to splutter.
  • Once it stops spluttering, add green chilli and onions. Stir-fry on medium heat until browned. Remove from heat and keep aside in a plate.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of oil in the same wok.
  • Add the chopped okra and stir-fry for a few minutes until cooked and aromatic. This way, the okra will not split while cooking and the dish turns out very tasty.
  • Remove the okra from heat, once fried and lightly browned.
  • Add the sauteed onion mixture back to the wok and toss in the fried okra. Mix well to combine and allow to cook for a minute on medium heat.
  • Now, add all the masala {spice} powders and mix well.
  • Allow to cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, mix well and cover the wok. Allow the flavours to blend well and the tomatoes to cook until softened. This takes about 7 minutes.
  • Uncover, add salt and mix well.
  • Allow to cook for 2 minutes on medium heat.
  • Remove from flame and serve hot with rotis.
  • Enjoy!
