while the preparation of bhindi recipes are extremely easy, but some considerations for perfect gravy. firstly, whenever you shop of okra, try to buy tender okras. the best way to determine a tender okra is by snapping the tip of okra. if you can easily snap then it is tender. secondly, always wash okra properly and then wipe them dry before chopping it. with the presence of moisture, okra would release its latex. lastly, you can also add slit capsicum with the gravy to have rich chilli and sweet taste.
