RECIPE TIPS

Tips for making Bhindi Do Pyaza

  • Always rinse the bhindi first and then wipe them dry and then chop them. If you just wash them and then chop them they become sticky, while chopping itself. even while cooking them, they become slimy and mushy.
  • 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 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.
