Bhindi also called okra or ladies finger has acquired an exotic image in the west, but in fact this is one of the most commonly consumed vegetables in India.

The Punjabis love their bhindi and eat it in every form, fried curries and stuffed. Here this delicious vegetable has been deep fried, making it crisp and crunchy and then tossed in a semi dry masala before serving. Serve sukhi bhindi with some Punjabi Dals / Kadhis and Cooked Rice .
