You will love this dish irrespective of whether you usually like bhindi or not.

Slit okra is coated with cornflour and deep-fried to an excitingly crisp texture, before being tossed with lip-smacking ingredients like spring onions, ginger, garlic and soya sauce that simply make you drool with their strong Oriental flavour.

Serve the Crispy Okra immediately to retain its crispness and enjoy the best flavours too. You might have to fry the bhindi for quite some time to get the crispy texture, but the outcome is worth your patience.

Serve as Starters / Snacks or as a side dish to the Main Course .
