Kurkuri Bhindi / Crispy Okra

The pati cannot eat the seeds of the lady’s finger. 😦

So for the 9 months of the marriage, I have never brought the vegetable in the house. I love it too dearly but was lazy to take seeds off each of the lady finger. Ouch.

However, I did make this one after taking directions from mom.

You shall need: [Feeds 2]

200 gms… Lady’s finger/Bhindi/Okra. Wash and pat dry. Cut it length wise . Take out seeds if you please.

3 Tbsp… Besan/gram flour

1 Tsp… Red Chilly powder

1/2 tsp… ajwain/carom seeds


Chaat masala to taste

Oil to fry.


  • In a wok keep oil to heat for deep frying.
  • make sure the lady’s finger strips are dry, add the besan/gram flour, salt. carom seeds, red chilly powder.
  • Add water 1 tbsp at a time. We only need to scant cover the ladies fingers with the flour.
  • Dont add too much of water, as it shall call for more flour. We shall not be able to taste the okra in that case.
  • Add small batches of the okra in the oil.
  • It shall tend to stick to each other, dont worry we shall, it shall be fine.
  • Take it our once it is slightly brown.
  • Once all the bathes are fried, wait for it to get a little less warm.
  • using a fork/your hand, seperate the okra. It shall hardly take a few sec
  • Flash fry them again for a couple of seconds. Dont keep them in oil for too long as they shall burn.
  • Take them out on tissues and add chaat masala.
  • Serve immediately.
  • It goes very well with Dal and chawal.
