Okra is one of the most indeginious Asian vegetable used extensively in several Asian kitchens. In India Okra also called as Bhindi is used as stir fry or with a yoghurt sauce or with potatoes and onions (One of my recipe is – here). But crispy okra or kurkuri bhindi is one of my favorite recipes since I had it several years back at a restarurant. I did try making it at home back then but realised to make it taste or to get the right consistency I really needed to use a lot of oil and of course didn’t find any solution to that problem then.
According to me Okra/Ladies Finger/Bhindi is a superfood and often not given the importance in our kitchens that it deserves. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of a range of health conditions, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
When I received the Princess Air Fryer I instantly knew I had to try making Kurkuri Bhindi as I had seen several recipes online/Youtube which stated that any goof air-fryer can really make this dish wonderfully using just 1 tbsp oil and it is absolutely true.
It turned out so kurkuri or crispy that I couldn’t believe it myself. All I needed was 8 mins inside the airfryer and it was done. I squeezed some lime juice on top of it and amchur powder for extra flavor and garnished it with coriander leaves.
This recipe is definitely a keeper, trust me!
