Banane Ki Vidhi

Prepare Bhindi:

    • Trim the ends of the bhindi and slice them into thin rounds. Ensure the bhindi is completely dry to avoid stickiness during cooking.

Sauté Bhindi:

    • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan. Add sliced bhindi and sauté on medium heat until it’s partially cooked and starts to turn golden brown. Remove the bhindi and set it aside.


    • In the same pan, add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add chopped onions and sauté until they become translucent.

Add Spices:

    • Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute until the raw aroma disappears. Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well.

Tomato Puree:

    • Add the tomato puree and cook until the oil starts to separate from the masala.

Combine Bhindi:

    • Add the partially cooked bhindi to the masala and mix gently. Cover and cook on low heat for about 10-15 minutes or until the bhindi is fully cooked.

Finish with Garam Masala:

    • Sprinkle garam masala over the bhindi masala. Mix well and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Garnish and Serve:

    • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve the low-oil bhindi masala with roti or rice
