This Indian dish is made with sliced okra that’s seasoned with a blend of spices and deep-fried until golden and crispy. Using some of the best masalas online and in your stores, you too can make Kurkuri Bhindi that stays crisp for long and always calls for second servings!
500g Okra/Bhindi (washed, dried, slit into two)
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 pods of garlic
1/2 inch ginger
2 green chillies
Coriander leaves for garnish
1 teaspoon Cee Pee Red chilli powder
1 teaspoon Cee Pee Haldi powder
1 teaspoon Cee Pee Dhania powder
1 teaspoon Cee Pee Jeera powder
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon Cee Pee Amchur Powder
2 tablespoon Besan/Gram Flour
Oil to deep fry
Take the slit Bhindi in a bowl and sprinkle Cee Pee Red chilli powder, Cee Pee Dhania powder, Cee Pee Haldi powder, Cee Pee Dhania Powder, Cee Pee Jeera Powder, and Besan. Mix nicely with light hands. Be careful not to rub the Bhindi too much as the seeds may come out.
Heat oil in a deep-frying pan and fry the Bhindi in small batches until it becomes golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove the Bhindi from the oil and keep it on a parchment paper to get rid of excess oil.
In the same oil, fry the sliced onions with garlic and ginger, keeping the crunch. Take it out after 2 to 3 minutes.
In a bowl, add the fried Bhindi along with the onions and ginger-garlic mixture. Sprinkle Cee Pee Amchur powder and salt, toss it lightly like a salad, and serve with coriander leaves as a garnish.
Enjoy your Kurkuri Bhindi as a meal or snack, and savor the crispy texture and flavorful spices in every bite!

While it can be made by even the newest of cooks, its important to know that one should use the best spices to ger the most of the flavour.
