  1. Hi Dassana..I love all your recipes..I can’t thank you enough..Usually whatever recipes i try from your site come out well..I am a starting level cook because I just got married last year and I have not done much cooking before marriage..thanks again..I have a doubt with this recipe..when i tried this twice earlier it came out really well..but yesterday and today when i made it..it had a slightly kachha taste..Is it because the bhindi was not ripe enough?

    • Welcome Susan. Glad to know that recipes are turning out well. The Bhindi should be tender. Otherwise you need to cook for some more time. Saute the okra till done. tender okra taste good.

  2. If I sauté the onion without oil in non stick kadai, then can I make okra?

  3. Good and intersted Recipies..

  4. superb taste
