We love making vegetable curries! Bhindi ( okra) is our all time favorite sabzi – and I like mine with lots of tomatoes !! This is my recipe which requires little oil as I don’t believe in deep frying the bhindi. The reason our ami’s fried bhindi was to remove the sticky lace from it- but hey!! Here’s a hack! Squeeze in some lemon juice and viaola- no lace in there.
