Bhindi has a property that not many people know to exploit to their advantage. The seemingly sticky vegetable is capable of lending a crisp texture to many snacks. Even today, in Tamil Nadu you will find some knowledgeable people adding a handful of chopped bhindi to their dosa batter to get a charming golden colour and exciting crispness. Here, we make use of that same property of bhindi to make a crunchy and tasty Bhindi Pakora. This unusual recipe tastes too good and is sure to win over many hearts. The success of this pakora lies in how well you make the dough without using any water. You need to press and squeeze the dough while mixing so that a little bit of oil and the stickiness of bhindi are enough to bind the flours together. Once deep-fried, sprinkle a dash of chaat masala on these yummy pakoras and serve hot with tea.
