Crispy Bhindi

This is great as a starter if your menu is Indian. No deep frying ... and is done in minutes.
Need : Bhindis, cut down the middle lengthwise, besan, lemon juice, red chilli powder, ajwain, salt and a little cooking oil.
How to : Mix everything well. The besan should not be too much ... just enough to coat the bhindis.

Heat a little oil in a flat pan / tawa. Shallow fry the bhindis till golden brown.

Serve immediately.


  1. wow looks mouthwatering and great u did it on griddle.

  2. wow.. is it only shallow fried ? looks scrumptious!

  3. I am back..what did I miss? I was away on my exam preps which got done today..seemed like forever :) This looks great..I have developed a recent crush on bhindis :)

  4. Hey! I make it exactly the same way but I roast the besan before itself and cook this in the m/w for less oil thingy:) Your pictures look too too mouthwatering - its a crime to just watch!!

  5. Thanks Shibani! :-)

    Thanks Rashmi! Yes, in fact it took lesser oil than is needed to shallow fry. :-)
