  • 100 grams or 1 cup Okra (Bhindi) thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Besan (gram flour)
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon Red chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon Coriander powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Amchur powder (Dried mango powder)
  • Chaat masala to sprinkle on top
  • Oil for deep frying



  • Wash the bhindi well. Then wipe it dry using kitchen towel or paper napkin.
  • If you have time then wash ahead of time and let it air dry in colander for 1-2 hour.
  • Now slice the okra vertically into thin slices. I have made 4 slices from one okra.
  • Take the sliced bhindi into the colander and shake it lightly over the sink or garbage bin. So the most of the seeds will get removed.
  • Take that into a plate. Sprinkle besan, salt and rest of the spices.
  • Mix it using you hand and make sure that all the slices are coated with this.
  • Let it sit or marinate for 10-15 minutes.

Making kurkuri bhindi recipe:

  • Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Always use less oil to fry this bhindi. Because after frying you will have messy oil with all the masala. So I recommend to use small pan with about an inch of oil.
  • Once oil is hot, take few okra slices, shake it lightly and then add into the hot oil.
  • Keep moving once in a while for even browning. Fry till they are golden brown and crispy.
  • Once fried, remove it using slotted spatula.
  • Transfer them to a paper towel lined plate. Add the next batch to the hot oil.
  • sprinkle the chaat masala and serve.
