Low Fat Sookhi Bhindi - for diabetics | Easy Side dishes

As a family, we love Okra / Bhindi / Lady finger as a veggie, my elder one is particularly partial to Bhindi & Karela (bitter gourd). Although am not fond of the latter, I eat it in specific dishes only. Today's dish is a super simple yet different version of the Okra stir fry (Bendekayi Palya) that I usually dish out for the rest of the family. My sister loves this Bendekayi Gojju (okra in tangy gravy)

Do checkout the steps below to get a yummy yet low cal dish. This side dish was served in the Diabetic Mini Thali posted early this week.

Ingredients (serves : 2)

  • Tender Okra / Bhindi / Bendekaayi - 10 nos
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Marination Mix : Garam Masala powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, lemon juice (1 tsp), amchur (dry mango powder), Rasam powder, Sugar or Jaggery (1/2 TBSP)
  • Salt - to taste

Method:

  1. Wash, wipe and trim the Okra. 
  2. Cut diagonally into medium slices. 
  3. In a bowl, add the chopped okra, marination mix, give it a quick stir. Let it sit for 7-8 mins.
  4. In a non stick pan, heat oil, add the okra and on a very low flame, let it cook uncovered (about 10 mins). stir once in 2-3 mins so it doesn't burn. Sprinkle few drops of water from time to time if needed.  
  5. Once done fully, add salt , mix and serve immediately
