Bhindi Kurkuri-Deep fried crispy okra smeared with gram flour and Indian spices
Bhindi Kurkuri- Okra /bhindi is easily available during this season and is a favorite of many.Few stays away from it due to its sliminess.Their is this simple tip to avoid its sliminess is to add some sourness in it at the last stage.I prefer to add raw mango powder /amchoor in it but if you don’t have amchoor then can add lemon juice or tamarind pulp to remove sliminess and to enhance the taste.
Okra /bhindi is the favorite vegetable of my family so made often some times its Bhindi aloo Ki Sabzi or stuffed with spices to make Bhindi Sambhariya, Achari Bhindi , Bhindi Masala and my favourite Bhindi ka Raita

I made Kurkuri Bhindi last week. Actually rubbed the besan instead of tossing, so kept adding more besan, hehe. Will remember this tip next time.
Anyway it had turned out great, but it was too much oil. I'm going to see if baking works instead of frying… have you tried?
