Achari Bhindi Masala

My mom never failed to feed bhindis when we were kids,earlier i hate this veggies a lot.But once i came to know about their health values slowly i started eating them. Now after bittergourds,one of my favourite veggie is this bhindis.Once a week,i'll go to Indian grocery here and never failed to pick bhindis.Fortunately everyone at home love this vegetable, obviously i have to cook this veggie with variations everytime to suit our tastebuds,this time i prepared this ultimate achari bhindi masala..

Achari bhindi is a super delicious,spicy,tangy bhindi fry with lots of flavours, i was planning to make this achari bhindi masala since a long.Finally few days back, i prepared this yummy achari bhindi with some super duper fresh bhindis..This achari bhindi masala tastes too good when served either with rotis or with dal and rice.Check out other food bloggers participating this incredible blogging marathon here.Sending to my own event Healthy Vegetarian Side Dish guest hosted by Vardhini..

  3. Bhendi is strangely not my favourite though the rest of the family enjoys it. And I look for recipes that are different each time. This will be the next dish I will make and luckily I have all the ingredients ready.

  31. Just finished dinner, Priya.
    Hubby & I, both liked the sabji!
    Except that the okra absorbs a lot of oil in the shallow-frying part. Otherwise loved the blend of flavors of your choice of masalas! :)
