Recipe : Pan Fried Okra

I had a hankering to eat something fried and crispy. I have been refraining from meat and I had a whole lot of okra in my pantry. I also did not want to invest much time into cooking. Yes, one of those lethargic days where you feel like opening an instant noodle packet but decide it’s okay to invest few more minutes into something else instead and pat yourself on the back until you realize you’ve still eaten way too much and are bloated.

Ingredients: feeds 6 as a snack

  • 500gms Okra
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • salt to taste
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 finely chopped green chilies
  • chaat masala powder to taste, optional
  • a pinch of baking soda

Instructions:

Wash and clean the bhindi well.
Chop into manageable cubes that will fry equally fast and won’t crowd the pan.
Gather your flours and spices in a vessel.
Mix well and make a smooth paste using some water. Make sure there are no lumps.
Gently coat the chopped bhindi in this batter.
Make sure each one is well coated. Marinate a while.
Heat a pan. Add oil.
Fry in batches.
Drizzle lemon juice and chaat masala.
Enjoy with a dip of your choice.

If you wish to have a more even coating, you will need to deep fry this. It is definitely tastier that way but the veggies will drink up anlot more oil. Choose your pick. πŸ˜‰

Bon Appetit!
