Step By Step Instructions With Photos for Bhindi Do Pyaza Recipe
Heat some oil in a pan and add Cumin Seeds to it. Roast the Cumin Seeds for a few seconds till they start to splutter.
Add some thinly sliced onions to the pan. Also add ginger, garlic and green chilli paste. Saute for 3-4 minutes till the onions start looking translucent.
Add chopped Okra (Bhindi) to the pan and mix with the onions. You can chop the Bhindi into small pieces or long slices. Make sure to let the Bhindi dry thoroughly before chopping it, otherwise it will become sticky.
Add Red Chilli Powder, Turmeric Powder, Coriander Powder (Dhaniya Powder), Garam Masala, Dry Mango Powder (Amchur) and Salt.
Fold the Okra and Onions along with the spices to mix everything well.
Then cover with the pan with a lid and cook the vegetables on a medium flame.
It will take around 15-20 minutes for the Okra to be completely cooked. Keep stirring it occasionally in between. Turn off the heat when the Bhindi is cooked and turns a darker shade of green.
Bhindi Do Pyaza is now ready. Serve it hot with fresh chapati or paratha. It also goes very well along with some Boondi Raita or Dal.
