Punjabi Bhindi Masala Recipe – Sautéed Okra with Onions, Tomatoes and Spices

I am a big fan of okra, specially spicy stir fried okra. Not many people like okra, because of its slimy texture when cut. I’ve never found a problem with that.

Okra is a very healthy vegetable, high in dietary fiber, minerals, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin K, low in calories, perfect if you are on a diet.

Punjabi Bhindi Masala is a very simple okra dish and the combination okra – tomatoes is simply delicious.

Punjabi Bhindi Masala Recipe Method Steps:

Start by trimming okra’s ends. Wash properly and dry okra with a kitchen towel. Then cut okra into one inch pieces.

Heat oil in a non stick pan and stir fry okra on medium flame, for about 10 minutes. Once cooked, keep it aside in a bowl.

In the same pan, heat oil. Add cumin seeds and when they begin to crackle, add onions and sauté for 5 minutes.
