Recipe Notes

Wipe the bhindi nicely and I suggest keep it open for an hour before adding spices to it.

Try to remove as many seeds as you can before adding the spices.

Be very careful while frying the bhindi. If you over fry it, it will turn bitter and if you under fry it, it will not be crispy.
