Bhindi/Okra Masala

This is another one recipe I got from cleaning my old crap. I don’t remember taking drown this recipe and also never tried this recipe before, might have forgotten completely about it but actually this dish tasted really good when I prepared and it’s a very good combo for chapati. This is a totally dry dish and I was not sure whether everyone in my family would like it so I have to make another dish to be on safer side but surprisingly everyone liked it.

Bhindi/okra – 1lb cut lengthwise
Onion – 1 chopped
Tomato – 2 mediums chopped
Green Chilies – 2 slit
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Bay leaf – 1
Clove - 2
Coriander powder – 2 tsp
Cumin Powder – 1 tsp
Chili powder – ½ tsp
Amchur powder – ½ tsp
Garam masala – 1tsp
Ginger garlic – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cilantro to garnish

In a non-stick pan, heat 2 tsp of oil and fry the okra until its cooked and turns light brown in color and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, clove and bay leaf and when its aromatic add onion and green chilies and sauté well.
Add ginger garlic paste and fry for few seconds and add tomato and cook till tomato are mushy and now add all the dry ingredients leaving garam masala and cook.
Now add the fried okra and mix well to coat with the masala and finish it of by adding the garam masala and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy with roti, naan or chapatti.
