Bhindi Kurkuri

I had my eyes on this fry since i got married.Had to wait for seven long years to make this and eat.This was served in my wedding dinner,sob sob i was the last one to eat my wedding dinner and believe me i was served only two bendis.

Got this recipe from a book which i own since long but never attempted it.When i did it came out very well.Will write about the book review soon for the event at EC.This recipe is not for the health conscious people.

Lady fingers (okra) 1 kg
Chickpea flour (besan) 1 cup
Red chilli powder 2 tbsp
Ajwain (caraway seeds) 1 tsp
Rice powder 2 tbsp
Coriender powder 2 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Dry mango powder (amchur) 1 tsp
Garam masala powder 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying

  1. Wash and dry the okra
  2. Chop off heads and tails of the okra and slit lenghtwise into 4.
  3. Take 1/2 cup of besan and mix all the ingredients in a bowl except rice powder and oil.
  4. Add okra to the bowl,mix well and refrigerate for 2 hours
  5. Mix remaining 1/2 cup besan,rice powder and little salt and toss with okra.
  6. If the okra are too dry and besan is not sticking to it,sprinkle little water and mix it.
  7. Be carefull while mixing it.
  8. Deep fry in batches until crisp.

I have just copy pasted the recipe from the book and only addition i did is that i sprinkled little water as the bendi was too dry and besan was not sticking to it.
