Bhindi Masala

Bhindi masala is delicious and in my perception it is the gravy version of the fry…

Cooking time: 20 mins

Prep time: 10 mins 


Bhindi – 1/2 lb (uncut)

Onion – 1 (chopped)

Tomato – 1 (chopped)

Green chillies – 3 (finely chopped)

Garam masala – 1 table spoon

Coriander powder – 1/2 table spoon

Turmeric – 1 pinch

Red chili powder – 1/ 4 table spoon

Oil – 1 table spoon

Salt to taste

Recipe for bhindi masala:

1) Boil the bhindi (uncut) in water without adding salt for 7 mins. Drain the water, spread them on a paper towel and let them dry.

2) In a heated pan, add oil and add onion. Fry them for about 1 min; make sure they don’t turn golden yellow. 

3) Add diced tomatoes, chopped green chillies, turmeric, coriander powder and garam masala. Mix well and cook for 5 mins. 

4) Add bhindi to this masala gravy + 1/4 cup of water. Let it cook. Add salt and red chili powder and mix thoroughly. 

Bhindi masala is ready to eat. Best when served with steaming hot rice and ghee 🙂
