Lehsuni Bhindi
June9, 2013
Lehsuni Bhindi is my favorite recipe, flavored with freshly ground garlic pods, simmer with spices, this recipe goes well as a main course with curd or raita or as a side dish with dal chawal or any other main course. If you are not worried about the color and texture of dish you can easily prepare it in microwave in very short period of time. This recipe is a deep fried version of the dish. Ingredients required and the detailed instructions of the recipe are as follows:

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 Minutes
Serves: 4
Okra or bhindi- 300gms
crushed garlic-2 teaspoon
Salt-to taste
Turmeric powder-1/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder-1 tablespoon
redchilli powder-1/2 teaspoon
Subzi masala – 1 teaspoon any brand
Amchur or dried mango powder- ½ teaspoon
oil-for deep frying

Wash okras, put them in vegetable strainer let them air dry for 5 minutes.
Remove the head and tail part of bhindis, Slit bhindis length wise, don’t detatch the parts.

In a small bowl add all the spices, and crushed garlic mix them.
Heat oil in a kadhai, deep fry bhindis till golden in color, frying will be completed in 2-3 batches. Let them cool properly, stuff the spice mixture in it.
Take only ½ teaspoon oil in a kadhai, again add stuffed bhindis to it.
Sauté for one minute on a high flame, simmer the flame, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of water over it from the sides, cover the lid and cook for antoher 1- 2 minutes.
If you want crispy bhindis need not to follow the last step of adding water and cooking it covered.
Sometimes instead of subzi masala I add Sambhar masala in spices mixture it taste good. You can also try this.
