Bhindi Fry – Okra Fry – Lady’s finger Fritters
Bhindi Fry is a healthy snack prepared by coating 1/4-inch thick, circular pieces of okra (Lady’s finger) with flavored, spicy flour and deep fried in oil. It can be served hot as a healthy crunchy snack without even any dipping sauce.
During my initial cooking days, I used to end up in fight with kadai while trying to make non-sticky okra masala. As Lady’s fingers are rich in fiber, I thought of including it in my meal in an alternative way – FRITTERS. Who can fail in preparing bhindi as fritters??? I always prepare them in bulk, as they would be quick gone into tummies in blink of an eye. It can’t retain its crunchiness if prepared in advance but that is no reason to stop me from preparing this yummy bhindi fry often. 🙂 If you are watching your calories, you can use a deep fryer (Deep fryer is an appliance that helps in frying with very less oil – Check out more on deep fryer – what/how and where to buy – here) instead of deep frying in oil. 🙂
Lady’s finger / Okra in English is called as Vendaikkai (Vendikkai / Vendai in slang) in Tamil || Vendakka in malayalam || Benda Kayi in Telugu || Bhindi in Hindi || Bendekai / Bende in Kannada and we call this dish as Vendaikkai Masala or Vendakka Fry here.
