Recipe for crispy fried okra or bendi, for crispy fried okra we will need one pound of green beat or okra or lady finger, trace of half of lemon, half an onion and some chopped marsala ,salt to taste and some oil.
We will first start off by chopping the tips of the okra on its each ends. After chopping the tips you can chop out the bite size pieces of bendi or okra. Meanwhile heat up a wok full of oil to deep fry the bendi in. Once the bendi has been chopped, we will chop the onions into small pieces. When the oil is hot enough you can add the green beats, the okra. We’re making crispy okra so when the okra is half crispy or half done, we will add the onions.
After a few minutes of frying you can see the okra pieces are shrinking up a bit and a darkening in the color as well. At this point we will add the onions, we will fry until the edges of the onions start getting slightly brown and then we can take it out. The onions have started to brown out now and we’ll take it out after a minute or two, now we’ll take them out on a paper towel. You can take the excess oil out by putting another paper towel on top. We’ll now serve it on a plate, now sprinkle some salt on top, I have some slightly chopped masala and squeeze lemon juice out on top and mix it together.
