A few cars were parked outside as I stepped into the Fresh Market this morning, I love it when it is calm and peaceful inside the store.The fruits and vegetables were stocked up to the brim, untouched & fresh.I like to do my grocery early on Sunday morning when it all quiet and less crowded.
Pushing my shopping cart through the aisle, I picked a few items on my list. Was heading home in less than 20 minutes, keeping the grocery shopping short and sweet.The okra’s I bought home looked fresh. I started my cooking right away, needing to focus on preparing for the week ahead, later on in the day.
They say one ought to wash the Okra’s and pat them dry on a kitchen towel before cutting them into desired shape, coz trying to soak them in water to clean after cutting would make them slimy to touch. So i cleaned and patted them dry, before cutting them.
My plan today with the Okra was to try a dry preparation to go with the rice and dhal, I had already made earlier.This Okra/Bhindi Masala fry is a very tasty dish from a Punjabi cuisine. (Punjab is a northern state in India & has some very authentic dishes in their cusine, which are hot favorites world around, if you enjoy Indian food!).
My other recipes published earlier using Okra/Bhindi are listed below, if you want to try out different recipes using Okra.
Here is the list :
