Bhindi also called okra or ladies finger has acquired an exotic image in the west, but in fact this is one of the most commonly consumed vegetable in India. The Punjabis love their bhindi and eat it in every form, fried curries and stuffed. Here this delicious vegetable has been deep-fried, making it crisp and crunchy and then tossed in a semi dry masala before serving. Serve sukhi bhindi with some Punjabi Dals / Kadhis and Cooked Rice.

Sukhi Bhindi, Punjabi Dry Bhindi Recipe with step by step photos
  1. Rinse and drain all the water after washing bhindi. Wipe them dry using a paper towel. Rubbing little lemon juice over a knife before cutting the bhindi helps to get rid of the sticky substance easily. Cut them into ½ inch pieces and not smaller than that or else they will stick to each other while cooking.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan on a high flame and deep-fry the ladies finger in it for 2 minutes. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside. This steps will make sure all the excess water is absorbed and okra is cooked yet not slimy.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai.
  4. Once the oil is hot, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  5. Add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes. If you are Jain, then skip adding garlic and onions.
  6. Add the tomatoes. They not only add to the flavor but, also reduces the stickiness of the bhindi.
  7. Now add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, dried mango powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. This is the normal onion-tomato masala which is widely used in making North-Indian subzis.
  8. Add the deep fried ladies finger.
  9. Now, add the lemon juice and coriander, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Souring ingredients like lemon juice reduces the sliminess.
  10. Serve the Punjabi sukhi bhindi hot with roti or chapatti and dal-rice to make a hearty meal.

   Hi, You can shallow fry the bhindi but, they will not get a crunchy, crispy texture.
