Bendakaya/Bhindi/Okra Fry

This Bhindi/Bendakaya fry is my favourite one and every one in my home loves it very much.It is a rich source of many nutrients,like folicacid,vitamin B6 and contains fiber.Bhindi fry is a North Indian dish.So many people cook it in there own styles using different spices.But i made it simply by adding onions, chilli pwd and Fried gram dal pwd.

Ingredients:
Bendakaya/okra/Bhindi-300gms
Chopped Onions-1medium nos.

Chilli Pwd-1tsp

Cumin/Jeera pwd-1/2tsp

Turmeric pwd-1tsp

Fried gram dal pwd-1tbsp

Curry leaves a few

Salt to taste

Oil-1tbsp



Preparation:
Wash n wipe the bhindi with a neat cloth and chop into fine pieces.

Heat a pan and fry the bhindi dry till they change the colour i.e to dark green colour.Take them into a plate.


Wipe the pan with kitchen towel and heat the same pan with oil,add mustard and split urd dal.Allow them to pop,once they pop add curry leaves along with chopped onions and fry them till onions turn into golden colour.


Add the fried bhindi along with turmeric,chilli and cumin pwd and stir well so that bhindi mixes well with all ingredients.Cook with closed lid and in the middle stir them to prevent burning.

Sprinkle little water and stir and again cook with closed lid until bhindi is cooked well.
Finally add the fried gram dal powder and mix well and fry for few mints.Transfer into a serving bowl.

Enjoy tasty n Delicious Bhindi fry with rotis or rice.
