How to Make Restaurant Style Tasty Bhindi Kadhai at Home
How to Make Restaurant Style Tasty Bhindi Kadhai at Home I learnt this recipe from Vah chef’s video and tried this for the first time, the outcome was very nice. I made one or two changes to suit my taste. The main draw back is, too much usage of oil!! Though I tried to use less than I saw in the video, deep frying the Bhendi is too much for me. One can just fry with less oil in kadai itself, but deep frying really made its stickiness Zero. It’s your choice! Goes well with roties and variety rice too!
