Crispy Bhindi Popcorn Recipe | Okra Popcorn | Fried Okra Bajji with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Deep fried popcorn or bites are a popular snack, especially with young audiences in urban cities. These are generally made with meat, potato, or paneer protein which makes it an ideal crispy and tasty munching snack. Yet it can also be prepared with other types of hero ingredients and okra is one such tasty ingredient to prepare unique and innovative Bhindi Popcorn Bites.

As I was explaining with the popcorn or bites recipes, it is typically made with popular ingredients like potatoes or paneer. Basically, it would help to hold the shape and more importantly add taste and flavor when deep fried. However, these options can be monotonous and you may crave something better or different. There are myriad options to consider, but okra should be a standout. Basically, the okra can easily be cooked while it is deep-fried. In addition, the crispiness with a hint of moisture in it makes it a perfect enjoyable munching snack. I typically, serve these with basic tomato sauce or hot and sweet sauce. But any type of mayo sauce or aioli sauce should make it even better.

Firstly, I would heavily recommend using tender and young okra for this recipe. This would help to make it crisp, juicy, and more importantly less fibber when consumed and hence a pleasant experience. Secondly, I used maida and corn flour paste to make the sticky coating and coated it against the bhindi slices. If you are comfortable with egg yolk, you may be better off using it. Lastly, these crisp snacks may turn soggy when it is cold or rested. Hence it is better to serve these immediately after deep frying for a better experience.
