Okra - Do- Pyaza (Bhindi Do Pyaza)

Bhindi Do Pyaza is a north indian dish. The hindi name for Okra/Ladyfinger is Bhindi and for onions is Pyaz. Do in Hindi means twice or double. This recipe uses double the amount of onions than what is used generally. Hence the name Bhindi Do Pyaza.

There are many different versions of making Bhindi Do Pyaza. On the internet you will find many versions of making this popular recipe. The recipe that I am posting here comes from my innovative idea and its a simple, easier and non fussy version of making Bhindi Do Pyaza.

Ingredients :

 Bhindi ( Okra) : 250 gms
 Onion : 2 big size, big sliced
 Tomato : 1 medium size, chopped
 Turmeric (Haldi) powder : 1 tsp.
 Green or Red chilli : 2
 Peanuts Powder : 1/2 cup
 Garnish with sliced red chilli

Method :

1: Firstly wash the okras in running water. Then wipe them with a kitchen napkin.
2: Now chop the bhindis into long pieces. Slice the onions too.
3: In a pan or wok, add oil, then add the chopped okras. Fry them on a medium flame till the okras become slightly tender.
4: Add turmeric powder, salt, mix well. Now add sliced onion, mix the okra well with onion.
5: Then add the chopped tomato and mix well.
6: When tomato is smashy then add peanuts powder with little water, Cook on a slow flame till the bhindi is soft and cooked. Don’t overcook as the okras will get mushy.
7: Serve it with roti or plain rice........

Tips for making the Bhindi Do Pyaza:

 Always wash the ladyfingers, wipe them dry and then chop them. If you just wash them and then chop them, then while cooking the ladyfingers become too mushy .
 Avoid adding water when making a recipe exclusively with lady fingers as they become too sticky and mushy. If your recipe uses water, then its better to first lightly shallow fry the okras and then use these in the recipe.
