Bhindi / Okra Fry

Bhindi / Okra Fry

This dish has a story and it goes to the city of hearts 'delhi'. Myself along with my buddies had to attend a marriage function in North Delhi on a very cold winter evening. We were quite excited about the dinner as the menu was non veg with vegetarian food as optional. My eyes caught the attention of spicy bhindi fry made at the last counter. It was very crispy and I relished it with dal and rice. This recipe is simple and kids will love to have this.
