Tips

Okra :

• Ladies’ Fingers or Okra should be tender for the Curry to be tasty.

• If you cut Okra into one-and-a-half-inch pieces, then the piece won’t shrink too much after cooking.

• If you put Bhindi in Oil and fry on high flame until they turn golden, then they will lose their stickiness.

• There has to be adequate Oil for this Curry to be tasty.

Some tips for perfect Okra Masala:

• The spices should fry nicely, and the Oil should rise to the surface. Only then you get a good colour and aroma.

• All the ingredients should be fried until Oil separates.

• Never add Water to the Curry. Everything should get cooked in Oil only. If it seems absolutely necessary, then add 1 tbsp of Water when you fry the spices.

• Add Tomato Paste in the spices and fry till the Oil rises to the surface. That will give a nice colour.
