Bhindi Fry (Ladies Finger Curry)

Bhindi (Ladies finger/Okra) is what we would call a comfort food vegetable for Indian vegetable dishes. This Bhindi fry recipe uses very little oil to make, is relatively easy to make and goes well in lunchboxes.

This north Indian dish is very flavorful and brings in a lot of texture from other vegetables in the dish. We recommend that you pair this with Chapathi’s or go as an accompaniment with steamed rice and Sambar.

In North India (Hindi) this would fall under the Subzi recipes category.
