Okra fry in minutes
1/2 kg bhindi (okra/ ladies finger). Cleaned, cut in half and with a slit inserted so the spices hold on.
2 tbsp besan (gram flour)
1 tsp red chilli powder (or more if you like it spicy)
1/2 tsp amchur powder (raw mango powder)
Salt to taste
What next ? 1-2 tbsps oil in a pan, add okra. Keep at maximum heat in the microwave so it cooks mildly. Add to it the spices (mentioned above), and besan, mix well and then microwave it again at maximum for ~5 mins. Don't cover when cooking as moisture gets trapped and may make the okra soggy.
To serve ?
It can be garnished with a little bit of chopped coriander leaves before serving.
