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.

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.

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.
