Crispy Okra (Kurkure Bhindi)Okra or ladies finger is a big hit in my house. My husband wouldn't mind eating it all seven days a week! My sister belongs to the same category! My little one and me on the other hand don't mind eating it, but there has to be a variation - can't eat the same recipe again and again. So, I am always on the look out for new ways to cook this vegetable.
his recipe is adapted from Sanjeev Kapoor's Kurkure Bhindi. The original recipe calls for deep frying the okra and then adding chat masala and red chilli powder. It is more of an appetizer than an entree. But I avoid deep frying whenever possible. Baking it in the oven is a healthier options and that's what I have done here. Also, I let the spices blend and marinate before baking and used chopped tomatoes and cilantro for garnish. A drizzle of lime juice and voila! I had a side dish for my chapattis!
eedless to say, tonight's dinner was a big hit and I have just an empty serving bowl to prove it :)
