Kurkuri Bhindi Recipe | How To Make Crispy Okra (Lady Finger Fry)

As the Name says Kurkuri Bhindi is nothing but Crispy Okra (lady Finger). Vertical thin slices of Okars are marinated with spices and then coated with chickpea flour and deep fried which gives crispy crunchy okra.

This is a very delicious recipe. This can be had as a snack or starter. I like these with simple dal rice.
You can eat as it is. I end up eating half of it before I finish frying all of them :). You will definately love it.Let's make it now.
