The sticky property of bhindi help in binding together all the ingredients. 2. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, drop spoonful of the mixture using your fingers. Maintain the temperature of oil.

These pakoras are just so unusual and taste fab, the combo of bhindi made as a pakora is mouth watering... When served with tomato ketchup and green chutney makes it a perfect high tea recipe...
