Okra (Bhindi) is a high fibre food.It’s a power house of nutrients like Magnesium,Vitamin C and Vitamin A.There are many recipes that you can try from this Okra like – Roasted Okra, Okra fritters, Okra curry,Grilled Okra etc.
Okra (Bhindi) gets slimy is one of the major problem that beginners face in cooking okra.One of the best way to get rid of this stickiness is to place them in cold water for 5 minutes,dry it with cloth before chopping them. You should never wash okra after chopping, it will get slimy.
Once you know this trick, you can easily cook bhindi and the best part is it takes less time to cook.I am planning to make today Bhindi Fry (Okra Fry) which is fried Okra with tomatoes and onions.

there is another way of cooking this recipie which is- you can fry the bhindi till they are soft and keep them aside.
