Hello Fitness Lovers,

I hope you all liked the Crispy Cauliflower fries I shared a few days back, well I am here with another interesting vegetable recipe.

This time I tried my hands on Bhindi or Ladyfinger and prepared this interesting recipe. Read on further to know the recipe and the secret ingredients.

Bhindi Kurkuri is made in many ways however this crispy with okra or lady finger recipe is mainly prepared by using  gram flour added with few spices and vinegar, deep fried until golden. They turn crispy upon frying and can be easily used as starters. The green vegetable is really tasty and serves to be an ideal snacking option which is healthy and free from  excess calories.

Okra is one of the most abundantly available vegetable in India and is used in preparing various dishes in all parts of the country. This is a low calorie vegetable and specially suits the diet needs of those people who wish to loose weight. It is easily digested and with no amount of cholesterol or saturated fats, it maintains the proper rate of metabolic activity.

This vegetable has high fiber content and gives bulk to the food. It also contains high levels of Vitamin A, C & B6. Large amounts of calcium, zinc, riboflavin, folic acid & Iron make it an ideal green vegetable perfect for a healthy and balanced diet.

Usually this recipe is reared by deep frying it in oil which turns the vegetables very crispy however those who don’t like to have oily food can also try preparing this dish in an Air fryer and can easily enjoy dishes like these which need to be fried for a great crisp and taste.
