It’s okra season again. By now you would be knowing that I’m a fussy eater and I’ve a natural inclination towards non-vegetarian food. But P loves his veggies as well as the meats. And he prefers to have a veggie stir fry for his lunch along with a chicken curry or fish fry.
Okra Stir- Fry or Bhindi Masala as it is called, is a popular dish among the North Indian curries. It is easy to make and can be served as a side dish to rice or rotis. I ‘ve read that okras are good for diabetes and weight loss. That makes me thinking now.. 🙂
