The Bhindi appears yummy and its presentation is cool. Red tomato and green corriander leaves are accentuating the visual appeal. I cook okara a lot because it is easy to make. I a gonna give it a shot but with only 1/2 tbsp chilli powder.

Looks very yummy.. my mouth is watering. I am having all the ingredients ready.Yday i tried for dry mango powder. I didnt get. Will soon get it and will make a try....

The amchoor (mango) in it sounds great - I usually use lime juice near the end for sour taste instead. Perhaps 'cause of my pitta, I rarely use chilis, leaning on a pinch only of cayenne, and love garlic cooked to sweetness in it - the onions sound good - though I have to avoid with my ayurvedic postpartum clients - that and the chiles. Hing works in small amounts to replace some of the grounding taste of the onions. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
