  • 2 cups Okra (Bhindi) chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Oil
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 Green chili chopped finely
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger paste or freshly grated or crushed
  • 1 medium or ¾ to 1 cup Tomato finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon Red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garam masala



  • First wash the okra well.
  • If you have time then let it drain and dry out completely. Or you are in rush, then wipe it clean and dry with kitchen or paper towel.
  • Cut the both ends (head and tail part). Discard them.
  • Start chopping the okra into half inch pieces. After you chop 10-15 okra, you will notice the sticky and gooey stuff on the knife. So wipe the knife clean with paper towel.
  • Also chop green chili, grate the ginger and chop the tomato.
