Kurkuri Bhindi is a spicy fried snack or main course dish made using Okra, gram flour and spices. It is very irresistible and can be prepared in minutes.
Wash and wipe bhindi.
Cut it horizontally into 4 pieces. Discard as many seeds as possible.
Add bhindi, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, cumin powder and chaat masala powder in a bowl.
Let it rest for 10-12 minutes.
Bhindi will leave little water.
Now add besan and cornflour to the bowl and mix lightly.
Heat oil in a pan.
Deep fry the bhindi in 3 batches over high heat till browned and crispy.
Remove on a plate lined with kitchen towel to drain the excess oil.
Sprinkle lemon juice on top.
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.
