furthermore some important tips, recommendations and serving suggestions for this besan bhindi recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use tender and fresh bhindi or okra’s to this recipe. otherwise you may feel more fibre’s with less juice within the bhindi while eating. secondly, make sure to wipe the okra’s dry without any moisture while chopping them. otherwise it may release its sticky latex making it a whole unpleasant experience. lastly, the same spice masala can be used for stuffing the bhindi to prepare the stuffed bhindi or bharwan bhindi masala recipe.
