The flavors of capsicum and bhindi go well together. Here I have added couple of tablespoons of fresh coconut. It takes it to the whole new level. The taste is just amazing. You must try it once.

Addition of chopped coriander leaves at the end add more flavors. You have to trust me, it makes the huge difference. So please do not skip it.

If you want to make this sabji Jain then do not add the ginger.

1) First clean the okra. Wash or rinse them well. If you have enough time then let it drain and let them dry out completely. If I have planned to make okra recipe ahead of time, I wash them 2 hours before making and so meantime they will dry out. If you are in rush, wipe them using kitchen towel or paper napkin. Okra should be completely dry to avoid the stickiness afterwards.

2) Cut the both ends (head and tail part) and discard. Slice them into 1 inch long pieces.

3) Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add sliced bhindi and little salt.

4) Stir and let it cook.

6) Remove it to a plate and keep it aside.
