Kurkuri Bhindi Recipe / Vendakkai Fry Recipe / Crispy Lady Finger Fry Recipe

This is one recipe which i made recently and instantly fell in love with it..Normally we make poriyal, avial, thoran, kichadi and even sambar out of the ladysfinger. I have even tried a completely different Rajasthan Bhindi too..But this one is completely different, plus it is so simple to make. You just need a handful of ingredients but the end product is crunchy and delicious.. Make sure you check all my ladysfinger recipe too..

This is a fried ladysfinger or okra dish..I have another version of a ladysfinger fry, will share it soon. But i love the simplicity of this recipe. I added some amchoor powder in this, which gave a nice tangy effect to it. If you love amchoor powder, You can even sprinkle some after it is fried. So give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..

  1. Hmm will do wonder in a rainy day...!!!!!

  2. What if i dont hv amchoor powder ?

  3. @AnonymousAdd lemon juice to ladysfinger before frying

  4. Aarthi wonderful recipe kudos to u..I just tasted and posting a comment thanks for sharing

  5. Lovely crispy Bhendi fry.. Really mouthwatering!! I am on diet.... hence it's gravely torturous to watch all your dishes. Love you, Aarthi...God bless!

  6. Hi Aarthi, i read somewhere that adding baking powder increases the crisp of the fried okra (or any other) and maintains the crisp for a longer period. Have you tried it before and does it make a difference?

    Someone also told me to mix wheat flour and rice flour in equal portions to get better crisp. What is your opinion? I tried it yesterday but the wheat flour wasn't as tasty as gram flour. Pls advise.


  7. @Anonymousa little pinch of baking powder will make it crisp and wheat flour will not taste as good as gram flour,

  8. Thanks so much for this recipe! Made it for today's lunch and love it!
