KADAI BHENDI

Kadai bhindi recipe – Learn how to make kadai bhindi masala.

Kadai bhendi is a semi dry side dish made with ladies finger and this pairs as a side dish with chapathi, plain ghee rice and pulao. I made this when i have guests few weeks back. Kadai bhindi paired with dabba dal and hot rice will taste very yum and nice. This is a very simple version of Kadai bhindi i came across from Varehvah’s website.

INGREDIENTS: Serves  3-4

LADIES FINGER 300 GMS
TOMATO 3 NO
ONION 2 NO
CAPSICUM(CUBED) 1/4 CUP
CUMIN SEEDS 1 TSP
RED CHILLI POWDER 1/2 TSP
CORIANDER POWDER 1/2 TSP
GARAM MASALA 1/4 TSP
CORIANDER LEAVES FEW
TURMERIC POWDER 2 PINCHES
SALT AS NEEDED
OIL 2 TBLSP + OIL FOR DEEP FRY THE BHENDI

KADAI BHENDI
METHOD:

  • Wash and pat dry the ladies finger. Cut them into slightly big roundels.
  • Lightly deep fry them in oil. This step is absolutely optional. This step is done just to retain the colour of the ladies finger. Since i had made for my guests i made it deep fried.
  • Drain it in a kitchen towel.

  • In a pan add oil and throw in the cumin seeds.
  • Add the chopped onions and fry for few minutes till it turns out pink.
  • Add the tomatoes to this and cook till the tomatoes become mushy and add the coriander powder, redchilli powder , turmeric powder and salt to this.
  • When the tomatoes are cooked add the cubed capsicums to this.

  • When it is done add coriander leaves to this and mix well.
  • Enjoy hot with rotis /pulao.

NOTES:

  1. If you are not deep frying the ladies finger, just saute it in amedium flame by adding 2 tblsp of oil to this.
  2. Ginger garlic paste can also be used.
  3. In the original recipe the chef added 1 tsp of hand pound coriander seeds. Since we don’t like the whole coriander seeds, i skipped this step.
