This is a dish I have tried in our office cafe when I was in Hyderabad. I always found it an interesting combination – ladies finger and peanuts. The crunch the peanuts gave to the curry was quite nice and though I wasn’t sure what recipe the chef there used, I tried to replicate it the other day and it did come very close in taste.
BHINDI FRY RECIPE
Okra / ladies finger / vendakka – 15 (number of okras)
Raw shelled peanuts – 3 tbsp
Shallots – 4, chopped
Garlic – 1 tsp, minced (optional, but add for more flavour)
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 tbsp
Curry leaves – a few (optional)
How to Make Bhindi Fry:
1. Heat oil in a pan and lightly fry the shallots and garlic. When it starts browning, add the chilli powder and fry for another 10-15 seconds.
2. Now add the okra and peanuts and fry on sim till the okra turns soft and the peanuts are done.
3. Finally, mix the salt and curry leaves in and remove from fire.

Thank you so much for the feedback Shama 🙂 So glad you liked the okra stir fry with peanuts.

That’s a creative way to dress up okra. I’m thinking crushed almonds wouldn’t be bad either.
