Bhindi recipes (15 Easy Indian Bhindi Recipes) Okra Recipes

Bhindi also known as Okra or Lady finger. In India, this is a common vegetable. You will find in any vegetable market and most of the household make the different recipes using bhindi.

My family is huge fan of any kind of bhindi recipes.

Using okra,
– We can make different sabzi or curry to go with roti or paratha.
– Some sabzi can be eaten as a side dish with rice, dal.
– Even we can make kadhi using bhindi.
– We can add into the sambar along with other vegetables.
– We can deep fry the bhindi and eat as a starter or snack.

How to buy?
– They should be long, fresh looking and dark green in color.
– Don’t buy those who have blemishes, cut or leaked internal juices.
– Try to buy those who have less seeds in it.

How to clean and chop?

  1. Wash them under running cold water and wipe them dry using kitchen towel or paper towel. If you have time then let them air dry on countertop for about 1-2 hours instead of wiping dry.
  2. Before chopping, you need to cut and discard the head and tail part.
  3. Then start chopping or slicing as required in the recipe.
  4. After cutting few bhindi (around 10-15) the knife will get sticky and slimy because of okra’s internal slimy properties. So always wipe clean the knife using paper towel. So keep cutting and cleaning the knife as you feel sticky.

Cleaning and chopping The Okra or Bhindi

How to avoid the sliminess?

  • Okra should be completely dry before you start chopping.
  • Cleaning the knife during chopping prevents the stickiness while cooking.
  • Addition of acidic ingredient (e.g. lemon juice, tomato, tamarind, amchur powder) will cut down the slim.
  • Never add water while cooking bhindi. Even if little water is gone into the pan while cooking, it becomes slimy mess. For making gravy dishes, always cook the okra alone separately and then add into the gravy.
  • Do not stir too much while cooking, This helps to reduce the sliminess.

Just like other vegetables, Bhindi also have many health benefits. So always include any bhindi recipes in your diet.
