Bhindi Masala Recipe | Bhindi Dry Sabzi | Bhindi Capsicum Masala

Bhindi Masala Recipe
We mostly prefer rotis/Phulka for dinner and making a variety side dish everyday is a big task for me. We love sabzi or dry curry kind of side dish for Phulka along with mild dal or plain yogurt. Last week, made this simple and easy to make sabzi using Bhindi/Okra with Capsicum. Bhindi/Okra paired well with capsicum and the sabzi turned out so good, adding capsicum is optional but sure it gives lot of flavor and taste to the masala.

  1. Bhindi/Okra   1.5 lb (cut into bite size pieces)
  2. Onion  1 big (finely chopped)
  3. Tomato   1 small(finely chopped)
  4. Garlic  1 fat clove(finely chopped)
  5. Green chilli  1 no.(finely chopped)
  6. Curry leaves    few
  7. Cilantro    few finely chopped
  8. Capsicum, green color   1/3 cup(thinly sliced)
  9. Turmeric Powder    1/4 tsp

  11. Jeera/Cumin Powder   1/4 tsp

  14. Oil   2 tsp + 1/2 tbsp
  15. Jeera/cumin seeds   1/2 tsp
First roast the okra in a separate pan using 2 tsp oil till the okra is turns slight soft and keep aside.
Then heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a kadai, when it is hot add cumin seeds and allow to splutter and then add finely chopped garlic, green chilli, few curry leaves and fry well.
After that add finely chopped onions and saute until it turns translucent and golden brown.
And then add finely chopped tomato, sprinkle some salt and saute until it is soft and mushy.
Then add sliced capsicum, turmeric powder and saute for 1-2 minutes.
After that add roasted okra/bhindi pieces, chilli powder, jeera powder, garam masala, enough salt and mix everything well.
Now cover the pan with lid and cook the bhindi masala in medium heat for another 2-3 minutes and then open the lid, give a gentle stir and lastly add some finely chopped cilantro and turn off the stove.
That's it..Bhindi Masala ready.
I used only 1/2 of a tomato(peeled and de-seeded)you can also use 1 or 2 tomatoes.
Roasting okra before adding to the sabzi, helps to prevent sliminess and soggy sabzi.
