About Bhindi
Fried okra is a very popular dish. Okra can pre-cooked, roasted or grilled or added to curry dish with acidic ingredients like tamarind or tomatoes to reduce the sliminess.

Okra pods are mucilaginous which makes it slimy when cooked. Some folks do not like this texture and adding salt towards the end of the cooking process, or soaking cut vegetables in vinegar for half an hour before cooking reduces the sliminess. Fresh bhindi okra should not be washed after cutting because water increases the sliminess and stickiness of the vegetable.

Restaurant Bhindi
