Recipe Notes

  • Amchur powder is optional, it is used to get bit sour and tangy taste to the fry.
  • You can increase the quantity of red chili powder as per your taste.
  • You can also add corn flour in the place of besan/gram flour.
  • Add very little amount of water just to bind the okra.
  • Do not add much water, okra becomes chewy.
Tips
  • To get crispy bhindi fry it in high flame.
  • Add salt just before frying the okra, because it makes okra soft.
  • Do not fry all the okra at a time., make it portions and fry. Because the boiling point of okra will comes down. Check step-2.
  • Take care while adding curry leaves in oil. I usually run away after adding curry leaves.
  • Some portion of flour will settle down in the pan, when the flour not bind well with okra. Just filter the oil after cooling, and use it.
