bhindi masala recipe | bhindi ki gravy recipe | okra masala curry with step by step photo and video recipe. okra or bhindi is a versatile vegetable and is used in different types of indian recipes. even though it is very well appreciated in indian cuisine, it can be tricky to prepare as it releases the sticky latex while cooking. keeping all those in considerations, i am posting a rich and creamy gravy recipe known as bhindi masala recipe or okra masala curry.

i had previously posted this recipe couple of years back and i was getting quite a little feedback about it. especially, many had complained about the sticky latex it releases while cooking this gravy. i do understand it can be tricky to handle okra, hence i thought of re-sharing this post again with additional tips and suggestions. the first tip is to keep the okra dry. we generally wash the vegetables before using them. well, we have to wash okra too but have to thoroughly wipe and dry it before slit and stuffing. the other tip is to fry it before mixing it to the gravy base. this step helps to remove all the moisture within the okra. also, it also cuts the direct contact of fresh okra with the moisture from the gravy base. i would strongly recommend not skipping this step for a perfect masala gravy base.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the bhindi masala recipe. firstly, for a perfect crunchy bhindi, you need to use tender and fresh okra for this recipe. the best way to check the tenderness of the okra while buying is to snap the tip of it. if it easily breaks, it is fresh and tender. secondly, as a variation in this recipe, i have added diced tomatoes and onion in addition to okra. adding these makes it more versatile and attractive, but not mandatory though. hence you may skip it if you do not wish to. lastly, i have added curd or yoghurt to the onion and tomato base. well, i would still bank on yoghurt but you may switch it with cooking cream or even full cream milk too.
