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!



Preparation Time:


Cooking Time:



Okra chopped - 2 cups
 Oil - 2½ tbsp 
 Onions finely chopped - 1 cup 
 Oil - 3 tbsp (2 tbsp for frying Okra and 1 tbsp for tempering)
 Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
 Turmeric Powder - ¼ tsp
 Asafoetida - ¼ tsp
 Coriander Powder - 2 tsp
 Kashmiri Lal Mirch (Red Chilli Powder) - 1 tsp
 Garam masala - ½ tsp
 Dry Mango Powder (Amchur) - ¼ tsp
 Salt to taste


• Heat 2 tbsp Oil in a pan and fry Okra on medium flame till it changes its colour and slightly shrinks - this may take about 10-12 minutes. Keep this aside in a plate.

• Next heat rest of the Oil i.e. 1 tbsp Oil in the same pan, add Cumin Seeds, Turmeric Powder, Asafoetida and Onions. Sauté the Onions till translucent.

• Then add the fried Okras, mix well. To this add Salt, Coriander Powder, Red Chilli Powder, Garam Masala and mix well.

• Lastly add Dry Mango Powder and take off the heat.

Spicy Okra is ready to be served with either hot Rice and Dal or Chapathis.

"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."
