Bendekayi Fry / Okra Fry

Today is one of those days, when I am feeling very lazy to spend too much time in kitchen making tedious curries or side dishes. Seeing the okra, I wanted to make something very simple without any masala, just wanted to put the ready powders which are available.

So, I came up with this and tried it out.. It really gave the crunch and also the spice for this cold weather. You can just eat it as a snack or as a side dish..


ಬೆಂಡೆಕಾಯಿ /Bindi / Okra - 1 Lb(25- 30 Pieces)

ಕಾರದ ಪುಡಿ / Chili Powder - 1 Tb spoon

ಧನಿಯ ಪುಡಿ / Coriander Powder - 1.5 tsp

ಜೀರಿಗೆ ಪುಡಿ /Jeera Powder - 1 tsp

ಅರಿಶಿನ ಪುಡಿ /Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

ಉಪ್ಪು / Salt - 1 tsp

ಎಣ್ಣೆ / Oil - 1 Tb spoon


  • Cut Bindi and mix all the above powders along with salt as shown below.
  • Cover it and set it aside for half an hour.

  • In a non stick pan, add oil, then add bindi and fry till it is done.
  • Serve hot with any main dish.

PS: If you want it crunchy, just fry without adding water. If you want it soft, you can add little water.
