Bharivi bhindi is absolutely delicious! Spicy, savory, and chatpati.
Who doesn’t love okra? It’s one of my favorite veggies and it makes me genuinely sad that it doesn’t get a lot of play in American cuisine. I suppose that just means more bhindi for me. Or maybe it means that people have no idea what they’re missing out on. Either way, I have bhindi…and cheesecake. But not together, that would be gross. Well unless bharivi bhindi is the main and cheesecake is the dessert, that would be acceptable.
There’s 3 main ways we make bhindi in Punjab: stuffed, fried, or stir fried. Each is unique in it’s flavor profile and delicious. I’ve heard a lot of people say, “Ew okra, it’s so slimy”. To them, I say, I’m sorry you’ve had such terrible okra. If okra is properly prepared it loses all of it’s ooey gooey-ness. God I effin hate that term. Nothing makes me say eff off Susan like someone that says they love ooey gooey brownies, cookies, uh-oh…now I’m thinking of butt stuff. Well this went to hell. Yikes, no recovering from that one because who’s really interested in hearing the proper methodology for stuffing bhindi. Hehe..I said stuffing.
So, about them okra dishes. This dish is pretty easy to make and no real dramas to worry about. Just don’t get knife happy and slice your okra through. Also, just buy the whole spices, buying ground crap is still oxidized poo in a jar. Now I must leave because we (Cybil and I) are giggling about slits, sluts, slots. A+ if you got either of those references.
