Okra/Bhindi is a very healthy vegetable, it has plenty of valuable nutrients, good source of vitamin C, good for brain and is beneficial to diabetes.
Summer is the harvest season for okra, I just bought some from the shop and made this super yummy crispy Okra fry, it is a good side dish, and a good snack too!
20 or around 300 gms of okra
3 tbsp chick pea flour (Besan)
1 tbsp Rice flour
1 tsp sesame seeds（Optional）
1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Cummin Powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp baking powder （Optional）
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
3-5 tbsp water
Clean the okra, dry up, remove head and slice lengthwise into 4 parts.
Whisk together all ingredients under "batter", leave it aside for 10 minutes. Adjust thickness by adding or reducing water accordingly, we are looking at pancake batter consistency.
Heat up 2 inches of oil at medium heat in a cooking pan, dip okra in batter until it is well coated with batter and fry it until crispy and golden in colour.
Crispy spicy Okra fry!
