Bhindi Do Pyaaza

Bhindi Do Pyaaza


500 gms Okra or lady finger (भिंडी – bhindi).
2 large onions (प्याज – pyaaz) or about 4 medium onions, about 2 heaped cup sliced onions.
½ tsp turmeric powder (हल्दी – haldi).
1 tsp red chilly (लाल मिर्च – lal mirch)  powder or add as required.
1 tsp dried mango powder (आमचूर – amchur) or juice from half fresh lemon.
1 tsp garam masala (गरम मसाला) powder.
3 to 3.5 tbsp oil (तेल – tel) or ghee (घी).
Salt (नमक  – namak) as required.


  1. Firstly wash the bhindi in running water. Then wipe them with a kitchen napkin. Now chop the okra into half inch pieces. Slice the onions thinly.
  2. In a pan or wok, add ghee or oil. Then add the chopped bhindis. Saute them on a low to medium flame till the bhindis become slightly tender.
  3. Now add the sliced onions. Add all the dry masala powders except garam masala powder and amchur and mix well. Add salt too. Mix the bhindis well with the onions.
  4. Cook on a slow flame till the bhindi has become tender and cooked. Don’t overcook as the bhindis will get mushy.
  5. Lastly, add the garam masala powder and amchur. Amchur will give them little sour taste. You can use lemon juice (squeezing half lemon) instead of amchur powder.
  6. Mix the garam masala powder and amchur powder with the bhindi and onions.
  7. Serve Bhindi Do Pyaza with rotis or phulkas. It can also be served as a side dish
  8. Just before serving you could garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with Roti (रोटी) or Naan (नान) or Basmati rice (चावल).
