Food Diaries | Pakistani Okra Curry (Bhindi curry)


pakistani bhindi masala curry (okra curry)

One of our household favourite dishes to eat and really easy to make. Nigar hates anything green and refuses to try okra/bhindi. 
The hubby is Pakistani and he said it's authentic so that's that ;) 
Okra does not look the best once cooked but let's not judge this dish by the way it looks. I appreciate that it looks mushy but the taste is high up there.

Okra not only tastes great but is full of nutritional benefits; high in antioxidants, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. It also has fibre, calcium, folic acid and is low in calories. 

Grab: 
2 onions 
2 tomatoes 
1 bag of frozen okra (1 kg)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coriander powder 
1 teaspoon chilli powder 
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder 
1 cup water 
fresh chillies (optional) 
oil

Method:
1. chop the onions, tomatoes and chillies 
2. sautee with the oil for about 5 mins 
3. add all the spices  and allow to cook for a few mins 
4. add the water and let simmer for about 5 mins 
5. add frozen okra, and stir 
6. just let it cook. I like my okra really soft so i let it cook for about 45 mins. remember to occasionally stir to prevent it from sticking to the pan/burning. 
7. Enjoy!
