Bhindi masala/Ladies Finger Masala

Bhindi Masala/Ladies Finger Masala

This dish is my favourite. With Rice and Appalam it tastes fabulous.It goes well in Rotis and rice equally. In this recipe the Ladies finger is slightly tossed it has a crunch to it and it is not so gooey.


Ladies Finger - 300 Grams (washed,wiped and cut into 1 inch pieces)
Onion - 2 (Medium Sliced)
Tomato -1 (Medium Sliced)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon
Chilly Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Coriander Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Green Chilly - 1
Cumin Powder/Jeera Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric - 1/2 Teaspoon
Oil and salt - as per taste


In a Mixer add all the ingredients except salt and Ladies finger and grind into a smooth paste. No need to add water as onion and tomato would have enough moisture.

In a pan,, heat 2 tablespoon of oil and toss the Ladies finger for few minutes. Remove them and keep them aside.

In the same oil, add the ground masala and cook till the raw flavour is gone.

You may sprinkle some water if you think you masala is burning.

Once the raw flavour is gone, add the tossed ladies finger in the masala and cook for 5-7 minutes and the delicious Ladies Finger masala is ready to be served.
