Hey Shakti, I am a total novice cook. I followed your directions to the T and later on I realized that in the video you forgot to add Dhania to the Bhindi in the video.

Nice smile. Generally it is better to buy fresh long oakra and cut it, but if you are short on time cut Okara is fine. This looks like Gujarati style. What you put in beginning varies from region to region of India. Cumin, Panchpuran(5 spice mix), Fenugreek seed, mustard seed are some other options. well made 4 stars.

We love Bhindi/Lady Fingers! I am growing a burgundy coloured one and it is so pretty! Taste is maybe a little sweeter. I also love Shakti's smile!
