Bhindi Karaari / Spicy Okra – Jiffy Cooking

Vendaikai Mandi

Vendaikai Masala Varuval. Vendaikai Mandi. Bhendakaya Koora. Bhendakaya Kura. Masala Bhindi. Bhindi Masala(Southern Style).

As I told you before’ am kind of on and off with this Veg.Fast. I am trying to tweak my cooking style, with more G-R-E-E-N(vegetables I mean) rather than R-E-D (meat and stuff). Hmmm, though its not really satisfying, but its okay…I developed a special trait to adjust myself with Vegetarians these days.:)I used to whine a lot saying…vegetables take time, cleaning & cutting, ouch! Now, started seeing everything with a different glass…yep, its therapeutic to spend few more minutes in the kitchen and get rewarded with healthy-happy meal:)


Okra/Lady’s Finger 1/4 kilo
Garlic 6-8 cloves with skin-on crushed
Tomato 1 small
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1/2 spoon
Paprika powder 1/2 spoon
Mango powder 1/2 spoon
Cumin-cilantro seeds powder 1/4 spoon
Oil few spoons
Mustard 1/4 spoon
Curry leaves few.


Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustards and wait till they pop.

Add garlic, curry leaves, tomatoes and followed by chopped veggies.

Add salt and cover and cook for few minutes.

Remove the lid and add the powdered spices, now continue cooking over high heat for about 5-7 minutes or until the vegetable turns crispy.

Serve to go with your pulkahs or chappathis.
