MICROWAVE SPICY OKRA (BHINDI MASALA)


In our house everyone loves okra, for this reason I have made okra a number of times in my kitchen. Microwave Spicy Okra is a quick and tasty, which is specially cooked in rich Indian spices and flavorful coriander seeds. When I saw this yummy recipe on my dear friend Meena Bhatia's space Homely Food, could not resist myself by making this wonderful North Indian delicacy in just few minutes in microwave. Try this, you would surely love it.

INGREDIENTS:
250 gm Okra / Bhindi
2 Whole Dried Red Chillies
2 tsps Coriander Seeds
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
2 Green Chillies, cut in slits
1 tsp Dried Fenugreek Leaves (Kasuri Methi)
1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
1 Medium Sized Tomato (chopped)
8 Curry Leaves
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
2 tbsps Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
2 tbsps Oil
Salt to taste

METHOD:
Wash and wipe okras dry. Trim the tip head and tail part of each okra. Cut the okras in desired shape.

Dry roast coriander seeds and whole dried red chillies for 2 minutes. Let them cool a little. Pound and make a coarse powder. Keep it aside.

Pour oil in microoven safe bowl, heat at high power for 30 seconds. Add ginger garlic paste, pounded masala, curry leaves, green chillies and microwave at 100% MW power for 5 minutes. 

Stir in between once.

Now add okras and turmeric powder. Fold nicely. Cover and microwave at 100% MW power for 7 minutes. Stir in between twice.

At this time, add chopped tomato, garam masala, dried fenugreek leaves and salt in it. 

Mix well. Cover and cook for another 6 minutes at 100% MW power. Stir in between once.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and bhindi masala is ready to serve now. Enjoy this microwave bhindi masala with rotis and parathas.
