KURKURI BHINDI( LADIES FINGER FRY)

OKRA FRY.

        Normally we don’t order starters when we go out to eat as we feel it will spoil our appetite especially for the kids, but 2 weeks back when we went out for lunch on a rainy day afternoon we ordered for  kurkuri bhendi ,a simple and delicious  starter ,made with okra .  The entire family was so impressed with the taste and kids  wanted to make me again at home and i tried it on the very next day . It turned out so crispy and i am here with the recipe of Kurkuri Bhindi.

  28. Hi Jeyashri..firstly u r brilliant n congrats u r making people like me cook :)..I tried this receipe but could not nail it..the powder coated on okra separated once I put the okra into the oil.don't know what went wrong. Can u advice?

    1. thanks for the comments yesheswini. Regarding your doubt, the powders must be coated to the okra before it is put in the oil. The moisture in the okra will make this binding. If it is dry and not mixing with the okra, just sprinkle a tsp of water to this mixture and then you fry.
