  • 500g okra
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or black salt (sanchar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder or chilli flakes

  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tomato, minced
  • fresh coriander, minced
  • green chilli, minced (optional)

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:10min ›Extra time:10min resting › Ready in:40min

  1. Thoroughly wash the okra and dry with kitchen towel. They need to be dry for this dish.
  2. Cut off the top of the okra of and then thinly slice each okra vertically. If the seeds fall out don't worry.
  3. Place the chopped okra in a colander and massage them allowing more of the seeds to come out.
  4. Once you have removed the majority of the seeds place onto a plate and add all the spices. Toss gently (you can use your fingers) allowing the spices to cover all the pieces.
  5. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile heat a generous amount of oil in a pan.
  7. Sprinkle the gram flour over the okra and toss gently allowing the flour to coat all the pieces. Add a little more flour if necessary but the okra don't need to be heavily coated.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add a handful of okra pieces to the oil. The best way is to sprinkle them around the pan so they don't clump together. Once you add them to the oil use a ladle to stir them. Fry until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Place on a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
  10. Sprinkle with the toppings and serve immediately.

Bhindi fry recipe (Crispy bhindi sabzi)

Bhindi fry recipe - thinly sliced bhindi are mixed with besan and shallow fried in little oil till they are slightly crispy and crunchy. Then sauteed and mixed with onion and spices. This delicious everyday kind of cripy bhindi sabzi goes perfect with roti/phulka or chapati.

By now, you may know that bhindi is our family favorite vegetable. That is the reason you find many many different recipes using okra. And of course, I will be sharing more and more.

Usually this kind of 'okra fry' dish is made by deep frying the bhindi to get the extra crispy texture. But to make it healthy and so we can have it on day to day basis. I have shallow fried them with little oil. Added besan will help to make it crispy.

For shallow frying, always use non-stick and wide pan (not deep). The non-stick avoids the sticking. When wide pan is used, okra are arranged in single layer while cooking. So they have chance to crisp up instead of getting soft.

To get non-sticky sabzi, it is important that bhindi is completely dry after washing and wiping. Meaning there should not be any moisture. If there is any moisture left then cooked bhindi will get soft, soggy and sticky.


Indian Dry Spicy Okra | Bhindi Masala Recipe

Dry Spicy Okra or Dry Masala Bhindi is a very popular, staple and loved dish in Indian cuisine. Every regions, every states of India have their own creation of Dry Spicy Okra recipe.

A okra is sticky and crunchy vegetable, only hard thing about it is you cannot add water while cooking it. So, I have cooked okra alone first in oil only and then did seasoning so that authentic taste of okra would not overcome by Indian spices.

Even in my family, there are many versions of curries are made from okra. I used to make curry in which only okra as main ingredient. But then I learned to cook okra with potato, onion, tomato, methi (fenugreek leaves) and all the recipes turn out so delicious that it’s always on weekly menu.

Fried Spicy Okra recipe is my mother-in-law’s recipe that I loved most. Don’t worry, I will be sharing that recipe with you. but here, I have created very easy and quick version of Bhindi Masala that will be best for any beginners.

My hubby always says that you are best at balancing the spices and good at making simple dishes with twist. He always inspire me to share my specials secret recipes those he loves most.

And this recipe photography credit goes to him. I am very lucky that I can learn not only technical stuff from him (as he is a software engineer) but also a good photography skill as he is a really good photographer and always inspire me to take good pictures for my blog.


Preparation for bhindi fry

1. Rinse bhindi under running water. Drain them to a colander and wipe dry with a kitchen cloth or tissue.

2. Chop them to half inch pieces and set aside. For comfort while chopping use kitchen tissue to wipe off the slime from the knife.

How to make bhindi fry

3. Heat oil in a pan and cumin. I have used about 2.5 tbsps here since I have not used a non stick pan. You can reduce it to 1.5 tbsp if you use a non stick pan.

4. When the jeera begins to splutter add chopped bhindi and stir fry on a medium heat.

5. Keep stirring at regular intervals. Over doing it will make the bhindi more slimy so do it as needed. Bhindi will begin to turn slimy after a minute. To reduce the slime I usually sprinkle some lemon juice but I have not done it this time.

Making nut powder for bhindi fry

6. You can skip the peanuts from the recipe and use only coconut or sesame. You can also just use garam masala and skip all of these three.

7. While the bhindi is getting fried, roast the peanuts and garlic on a medium flame until golden.

8. Turn off the heat and add coconut and sesame seeds. I have also used little cumin here. Fry lightly for a minute.

9. Cool them completely and make a coarse powder.

10. When the bhindi is done, you will find that they are no more slimy. At this stage add salt and turmeric. Mix well.

11. Pour 1 teaspoon oil to the center of the pan. Add red chili powder to it. Let the chilli powder fry in oil for about 10 seconds.

12. Then mix it well with the bhindi. Fry for another 3 to 4 mins if desired. I do not prefer to over cook bhindi so I did not fry further.

14. Mix it well with the bhindi. It doesn&rsquot need to be cooked further.

Generously pour it over the cut okra and mix well to coat all of it.

For Air fryer okra

Preheat your airfryer to 160 C or 320 F for 6 minutes. I have the Philips Airfryer.

Now brush oil on your air fryer basket and put in the marinated okra in it. Air fry for about 8 minutes on 160 degrees.

Then increase the temperature to 180 C or 360 F and air fry for about 4-5 minutes till the bhindi are well cooked and crispy brown.

Take them out on a plate and rest for about 2 minutes. Now serve your kurkuri bhindi.

They are delightfully crunchy, tasty and guilt free. A perfect spicy Indian okra recipe.

If you don't have an air fryer, just deep fry in hot oil.

Padma's Recipes

This is a dish made out of okra/ladies finger dipped lightly in besan/gram flour batter and deep fried in oil till crisp.


Okra/Ladies finger/vendakkai - 1 pack or around 20
Besan - 1/2 - 3/4 cup
Chilli powder - 2 Tsp
Salt as needed
Oil for frying

Wash and pat dry okra's. Remove edges and first cut into half and then again into 4 long pieces. In a bowl take okra's and to it add besan, chilli powder, salt. Just pour very little water and mix. so it just sticks to the okra. Drop it in oil in small batches and deep fry till crisp.
This is one of favourite and loved to have it many times . so used to prepare sometimes as a variation over regular okra fry.


How to make Oven Roasted Okra (Baked Bhindi)?

  • Start with getting the ingredients ready. These are mostly simple everyday ingredients that you might have in your pantry.
  • Wash and pat dry the okra. Then cut it into equal size rounds.
  • Add onions, garlic, oil & spices to the cut okra. Mix it all well, so all the okra is coated with the spices.

  • Chop a tomato, but don't mix it in with the okra.
  • Now spread the seasoned okra in a single layer on a sheet pan. I used a parchment paper to simplify the cleanup after baking. Keep the tomatoes in a separate parchment paper on the same baking sheet.
  • I tried baking and broiling the okra. I preferred the taste of the baked okra. Bake at 425˚F for about 20-25 minutes.

  • You want the okra to be well cooked & browned, but not burnt.
  • Now transfer the okra and tomatoes to a bowl. Mix them all up and add dry mango powder (amchur). This adds a wonderful tangy flavor to the okra. You can also use lime powder or lime juice in place of dry mango powder. Baked Bhindi Masala is ready to be served!

Serve okra with roti, naan or just enjoy as a snack. Above is my dinner plate with roti and raita after I made this delicious baked okra.
