Bhindi Do Pyaaza Recipe: How to make Bhindi Do Pyaaza Recipe, Bhindi Do Pyaaza

Bhindi Do Pyaza is a north indian dish. The hindi name for Okra/Ladyfinger is Bhindi and for onions is Pyaz. Do in Hindi means twice or double. This recipe uses double the amount of onions than what is used generally. Hence the name Bhindi Do Pyaza.

This dish is found in the menu of many indian restaurants. There are many different versions of making Bhindi Do Pyaza. On the internet you will find many versions of making this popular recipe. The recipe that I am posting here comes from my mother-in-law and its a simple, easier and non fussy version of making Bhindi Do Pyaza.

Bhindi whilst cooking sometimes becomes slimy. In this post, towards the end, in the tips section, I have mentioned how you can minimize the sliminess and stickiness while cooking Bhindi.

Tips for making the Bhindi Do Pyaza:

  • Always wash the bhindis, wipe them dry and then chop them. If you just wash them and then chop them, then while cooking the bhindis become too mushy due to moisture.
  • Avoid adding water when making a recipe exclusively with bhindi as they become too sticky and mushy. If your recipe uses water, then its better to first lightly shallow fry the bhindi/okras and then use them in the recipe.
  • I have not covered the pan in this recipe as I do not want the bhindi do pyaza to be slimy and sticky.
  • Adding a sour ingredient like amchur powder or tamarind paste reduces the sliminess of bhindi (okra).
