Bhindi(Hindi) / Vendakkai(Tamil) / Lady's Finger

Bhindi Fry


300 grams Ladies Finger, cut into 1” pieces

3 Tbsp Oil

1 Onion, sliced

½ tsp Dhania Pd

½ tsp Garam Masala Pd

½ tsp Turmeric Pd

½ tsp Chili Pd

½ tsp Aamchur / lemon juice

3 Green Chilies, slit

Salt to taste

Coriander leaves to garnish


Mix ladies finger with 1 tsp oil, ¼ tsp salt and microwave for 3 minutes.

In another bowl, take the remaining oil and microwave for 2 minutes. Mix in turmeric, chili and garam masala and onion and microwave for 3 minutes.

Add fried bhindi and cook in microwave for 4 – 5 minutes.

Sprinkle aamchur and add salt to taste. Mix in chilies and cook further until done (4-5 minutes). Keep aside for 5 minutes.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

Note: I do not use onions, so I have avoided it. At step 2, I mixed it all in with the ladies fingers.

***Packed Lunch:

Spread 1 tsp tomato sauce on a chapathi. Place Bhindi Fry on it and roll up tightly.
