Bhindi-Do-Pyaza / Bhindi Fry / [Okra-Onion Fry]

Bhindi-Do-Pyaza is a very popular dish of North India. It is called "Do Pyaza" because the onions are added in double the quantity than found in any other vegetable preparation




Ingredients:

Bhindi [Okra/Lady finger] - 2 cups
Onion - 2 medium, thick slice
Ginger - 1tbsp [grated]
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1tsp
Corriander powder - 1.5 tsp
Red chillie powder - to taste
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Mango powder [Khatai] 1.5 tsp
Salt to taste
Canola oil - 3 tbsp or more

Method:

Wash okra and pat dry with paper towel. Remove the top of okra and slice the remaining okra into 1 inch slices [Optional: Sprinkle some salt and keep it aside ]

Heat oil on medium heat, add cumin seeds and let it crackle. Now add ginger followed by onion and fry till the onion slices get glossy and still retain the pink color

Add okra and stir for a minute, add salt and all the powder spices except mango powder. Stir fry on medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Next cover it with a lid and let it simmer for 10 minutes [keep stirring in between]. Cook till okra is soft and adjust for seasoning. Sprinkle mango powder and mix it thoroughly over low flame.

Serve hot with roti (chapati) or paratha as a side dish
