lahsuni bhindi recipe with step by step photos. this is an very easy and spicy bhindi recipe and won’t take much of your time.

lahsuni bhindi or garlic bhindi

as far as bhindi or okra is concerned, i am always open to new recipes. this lahsuni bhindi is an example of such a recipe.

flavored with garlic, chilies and onions…. a spicy bhindi recipe that goes extremely well with rotis or phulkas. i read the recipe in a cook book and adapted it to suit our taste preferences.

the original recipe has used 10 green chilies for 200 gms of bhindi which i think is a way too hot and spicy for us to handle. so i added just 1 green chili and this did make the bhindi a bit spiced up.

this lahsuni bhindi recipe make a good indian tiffin box lunch along with some soft chapatis or whole wheat bread. you can also serve lahsuni bhindi as a side veggie dish with dal-rice or curry-rice combination.

this bhindi recipe has been adapted from cookbook ‘vegetables and curries for all seasons’ by kanchan kabra.
