    I suggest using methi instead of jeera, also instead of tomatoes which would make the vegetable gooey, use some amchoor. It makes a lot of difference, try it.

    after washing behndi dry it on newepaper or wipe it with cloth it will turn out more cripsy.


    bhindi is most preferable dry. its gives a better taste in a semi dry form. if u add lemon or tomato chutnet to it and cook covered it will get gooey. chopped tomatoes should be added just before the final touch on a very high flame to avoid getting it gooey.


    U forgot the salt but twas good anyways


    I will definitely try..........

    ohh............. its very good taste also add some peanut powder for more better taste


    the dish was disastor, tomatoes and lime?? try it on ur own risk ppl....


    U can also add tamarind paste or kacchi keri (or green raw mango) pulp to the vegetable. Thats how my sis-in-law cooks it & it gives a great taste to the lady finger.



    mind blowing taste

    add methi(khadi) and jeera with onions in the begining to give the best taste to your bhindi.


    instead of jeera u can add ajwain.IT TASTES MARVELLOUS.I have tried it.Its my mom's recipe


    never cover the vessel in which you are cooking Bhindi.It give gooey effect. Second put haldi after onion get golden brown or red chilli powder ,it will give good colour to your bhindi.
