An evergreen favourite of the Syrian Christians in Kerala, Bhindi Mappas features sautéed bhindi in aromatic coconut milk gravy.
Although the bhindi does take some time to cook, this recipe is otherwise quite easy as it makes use of everyday ingredients and simple cooking methods.
An assortment of pungent ingredients like ginger, garlic, curry leaves, etc., perk up the coconut milk, turning it from a mellow ingredient into a mouth-watering gravy for the ladies finger. Serve with plain rice .
You can also try other Kerala style variants of bhindi like Dahi Bhindi or Bhindi Onion Stir Fry .
