Bhindi/Okra/Ladies Finger Kurkure [Crispy Okras]

I have two girls who have different preferences, one always has sweet tooth and another prefers savoury. I am always torn apart between these two girls, I know there are lot of moms just like me. So I need to always make something or the other to satisfy these girls. One such savoury, I make often for my girls is this bhindi kurkure. But it always so happens that even when I am frying the kids just finish it off…. Do check out other interesting and tempting Starters/Appetizers/Evening Snacks here.

Here’s how to make Bhindi Kurkure with step by step photos…


200 gm
Besan flour
3 tbsp
Corn flour
3 tbsp
Garam masala
½ tsp
Mango/Amchur powder
¼ tsp
Red chilli powder
½ tsp
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Chaat masala
½ tsp
As needed
For frying


Wash the okras nicely, now pat them dry really good with paper towel or a clean cloth. The okras should be dry and no water in it.

Now cut the head and tail off, then slit the bhindi length wise to make four pieces as shown in the photo. Now transfer the cut bhindis to a big bowl.

Now mix all the powders mentioned above except the oil in a separate bowl.

Add the masala mixture to the bhindis and mix really good, so that the masala is coated in all the pieces. Let it marinate for 15 to 20 min.

Heat oil in a kadai, and fry the bhindis in batches until crispy and turns golden brown.

Crispy bhindi kurkure is ready to be enjoyed. Can be had as such or served with a cup of yogurt.

  1. Congrats Priya for winning the voucher. I can understand how family members can have preference in the type of food. Its common because my other half and myself do differ in what we like to eat.

    Lovely crispy okra and thanks for the recipe. Its so boring to add okra into curries all the time and this will be replicated soon.
