Bhindi Masala - Pan Fried Okra
350 gm bhindi/okra/lady finger, topped and tailed and cut into 1 cm pieces
1 onion
1 tsp whole cumin
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder (optional)
Pinch of mango powder or amchoor
1 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Wash chopped bhindi well and leave to dry. Heat oil in a frying pan, and 
when hot add the whole cumin.

As the cumin sizzles up, add the onion and cook until translucent.

Add the chopped bhindi and all the spices apart from the amchoor. Stir 
gently until the okra turns dark green and softens.

Finally add salt to taste and sprinkle amchoor before serving.
