This is my mum’s recipe for Bhindi Chicken in which Okra (Bhindi in Gujarati) and Chicken are stir fried with tomato and spices to create a wholesome and delicious side or main served with chapati. My mum recently made this for us when we were visiting and my daughter loved it. It is a must try recipe for all lovers of Okra.
Bhindi Masala is a well known and often made popular Indian dish and combining it with chicken takes the flavour to a whole new level.
You can add more or less Okra/Chicken according to your liking.
How to prep Bhindi
The one issue that comes up time and again when Okra is mentioned is the slime also known as mucilage.
1. Wash the okra in cold water and then dry thoroughly with a towel.
2. You can then leave it out to air dry for a number of hours or overnight. This is an optional step.
3. Chop off tip and then chop into rounds.
3. Fry Okra is a little oil over a low heat for 10 – 15 minutes.
