Bhindi Raja Masala

Bhindi / Okras marinated in yogurt with a blend of spices. (Here I am using Kitchen King Masala)

I marinate Okras, by doing so the stickiness disappears automatically.  :)

Serves 4

Category - Sides / Lunch / Dinner

Kitchen King Masala - 2 to 3tbsp
Bhindi / Baby Okra / Okra - 150g
Yogurt - 2 to 3tbsp
Lemon Juice - 2tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 4tsp
Cilantro - 1tsp Chopped (Garnishing)

Wash and clean the Okra, cut off the steam. Then keeping it length wise, make a small slit.

In a small bowl whisk the yogurt along with King masala, Lemon juice and salt.

Now marinate the slit Okras with the yogurt mixture for 30 mins.

Heat the oil in a Wok, add in the marinated Okras and saute for 5 mins. Now add 4 to 5 tbsp of water and saute further for 2 mins. Then cover the Wok and cook till the Okras are soft. (Make sure you stir them in between)

Lastly garnish with cilantro.
Best to be served with White rice or Chapathis.
