How to make Ajwaini Bhindi Masala

  1. Cut Bhindi in 1 inch pieces.
  2. Heat a non stick pan, add little oil and fry onions and bhindy until it becomes tender and little brown in color. Once cooked, remove from pan and keep aside.
  3. In the same pan, heat oil again. Add carom seeds, allow it to splutter, add hing and fry for 1 min.
  4. Reduce flame and add chilly powder, turmeric powder and fry for 1 min. Now add tomato puree mix well. Cover the pan with lid and allow it to cook for 6-7 mins.
  5. Add salt, jaggery and mix well, add cashew paste and give a nice mix.
  6. Add little water, mix well and cover with lid once again and allow to cook for 5 mins.
  7. Crush some kasuri methi and add in the Bhindi. Cover with lid immediately and switch off the heat.
  8. Serve hot with paratha or rice.

My Tip:

This dish has sweet and tangy taste of jaggery and tomato. Cashew paste is optional, you can make this without that if you like tangy flavour.
