Bhindi Masala Curry Recipe – Bhindi (Lady Finger) is a vegetable that a lot of people do not like primarily because of the mucilage that you normally see in these species of plants. It looks like a slime and irritates a lot of people. But it is noteworthy that Bhindi is an extremely good vegetable when it comes to its nutritional value and this mucilage contains a usable form of soluble fiber. It is a good source of calcium and potassium. But with the way most of us cook it in India, a lot of its nutritional aspects are lost.
I always liked Bhindi even as a kid and Bhindi bhujia, a stir fried side dish was my favorite. This process of making Bhindi had an advantage that the sliminess was reduced. But at the same time, that meant a reduction in the fiber content as well. Bhindi bhujia goes well with rotis and since I always preferred dry side-dishes for rotis, I simply enjoyed this combination as well.
This recipe, Bhindi Masala Curry was an experiment I did and from the praise that I got from my family, I can safely say that it turned out to be a good one.
One aspect that you might want to keep in mind for this recipes is the size that you cut the Bhindi in. Don’t cut it too small, else it will get mashed into the curry.
I am sure you will love this curry. Let us jump straight into the recipe now.
