Bhendi or okra can be made in many different ways,today I am sharing a very simple recipe made with minimum spices in malvani style.For us malvani’s coconut is a must in every dish also as bhendi has a slimy texture amchur or lime juice is used while cooking it,here we will use Kokum for the same.
250 gms Bhendi/Okra cleaned,dried and chopped finely.
2 Green chilies chopped into 4 peices.
1 big Onion chopped.
2 tbsp Grated Coconut.
1 tbsp Oil.
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.
1tsp Sesame seeds.
1/8 tsp Asafoetida.
1/8 Turmeric Powder.
Salt to taste.
Wash and pat dry bhendi,cut stem and slice thinly.Keep aside.
In a pan heat oil,add mustard seeds,sesame seeds,asafoetida,chopped onions and green chillies.saute for a minute,add sliced bhendi, salt and turmeric powder,mix well.Add Kokum and saute well.Cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.Don’t at all add water as bhendi will become sticky.
