Kadai Bhindi Masala!!!

Hi guys!!!

I am back after yet another break :-) It was a long weekend here in the UK with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration. The weekend also was special coz it was my hubby's birthday. I baked a Black Forest cake, the recipe of which will be posted soon. With the long weekend coming to an end I fell sick with a really bad cold and fever. I am better now and am back with all the recipes I had cooked over this weekend and some time earlier!!!!

I love Okra whereas my husband hates them. Yes I am not exaggerating. He hates them. I can make him eat these gorgeous green beauties only if I deep fry them like pakoras. For a change I wanted to try a north indian style curry with okra and landed on this recipe. I found this in Vah Chef's site and decided to give it a try. I absolutely loved this curry and my husband had it without complaining. So it is indeed a success!!!!

Now lets see the recipe.

Serves 2 people

Okra / Ladies finger - 250 gms
Onion - 1 big
Tomato - 1 big
Bell pepper - 1
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Corriander seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 3 tbsp


1. Clean, dry and cut the okra in bite size pieces.
2. Heat the oil in a kadai and fry the okra pieces and set aside. Now in the same oil add the cumin seeds and crush the corriander seeds in it.
3. When they sizzle add the chopped onions, followed by ginger garlic paste and chopped tomatoes. Keep mixing them till they combine to form a paste.
4. Now add all the masala powders, salt and about 1/2 cup of water. Then add the chopped bell peppers and close the kadai and cook for about 10 minutes till the raw smell of the masala goes away.
5. Finally add the fried okra pieces and simmer for about 5 minutes and switch off heat.

Serve hot with rotis!!!
