Okra is also called as Ladies Finger or Bhindi in Hindi. Okra in any form tastes excellent provided it's combined with right ingredients☺! It can be served raw, fried, cooked, pickled etc. You can savour this all by itself or even combine with Onions, Tomatoes, Peppers, Corn. Hot Rice-Rasam + Ghee along with this curry is an excellent meal after a long day!

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, This was the first time I have shopped with you, but will certainly not be the last. My selection has just arrived, very securely packed, less than 24 hours from my online order. Not bad for a free, standard delivery! Many thanks. I was very impressed by the range of stock you carry - many old favourites I have been unable to source locally, plus lots more to explore over time - and in many cases significantly cheaper than their supermarket equivalents (where available). I also found the web site very easy to navigate and informative about the sometimes unfamiliar ingredients."
