  • I took tender okra for this recipes
  • Wash okra,pat dry with paper towel to avoid stckiness while chopping.
  • Now cutoff both ends,make a slit in the middle,and then make into two pieces,repeat the same process for whole okras.
  • If the okras are too tiny do not cut into two pieces,it enriches the look.
  • Now blend all the masalas together to a fine powder.
  • Heat oil in a pan,now add okras,cook on high flame for few minutes.
  • Now put the flame on low -medium,then close the lid,let the bendis fry,make sure they are not burnt,donot add water.
  • Once the bendi is cooked,add the masala powder,cook on low flame,now add 2 teaspoons of oil.
  • Once done put-off the flame.Garnish with some coconut powder.
  • Add ingrediens according to your variations
  • It really goes well with rice.
  • a great side dish.
