Method 

  • In a Mixing bowl  add cornflour, gramflour, rice flour, pinch of soda, salt to taste and red chilli powder give a good mix then add the bhindi .The water content and the sliminess in okra is quiet enough to hold the binding well so  pls don't add any more water .
  • Take a non stick pan add oil and fry till well till the bhindi gets cooked and become crisp ( I don't deep fry this as it soaks in lot of oil so the roast it well in oil till the sliminess goes and it shrinks in size , becomes very crisp . I have shown the picture below how it should look .( It was very Yumm to be honest i Couldn't stop myself from eating a few :D)



  • Now in a non stick pan fry coriander seeds , green chilli , curry leaves fry well then add this to mixer grinder and grind this along with fried bhindi , coconut , tamarind salt to taste (remember bhindi has already salt in it so adjust as per your taste later)
  • Serve with chapathi for your choice...it's a nice way to make your kids have bhindi as you cannot even come to know it's been added here :D ....Great isn't it that's what I felt when I tried it ...so Do try this and don't forget to leave in your feedback ...its yumm and very nutritious too :)
