Okra Fry Masala

Who doesn’t love quick recipes?? Somedays when I don’t have time, I prepare okra masala. This is a popular dish in many Indian homes and is one of the easiest to prepare. It’s got all the masala flavor and the okra goodness to create a memorable dish. It’s best had with chappatis or phulkas. So good!


  • Prep time – 15 minutes
  • Cook time – 10 minutes


  • Okra (Cut into 1-inch pieces then slice into quarters)- 500 g
  • Kashmiri Red chilly powder – 1 tsp 
  • Amchoor powder – 1/4 tsp 
  • Jeera powder – 1 tsp 
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp 
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp 
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp (Reduce to 1 tbsp if you want it healthier)
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp 


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the cut bhindi. To this add all the above remaining ingredients and mix it all together until the bhindi is well coated with masalas
  2. Now heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and fry the marinated bhindi for 5 minutes. Then, cover and cook for 10 minutes, you can add 2 tsp of water so that it doesn’t get burnt
  3. Serve hot with chappatis 🙂
