Microwave Bhindi/Okra

Express cooking idea # 3


Bhindi/Okra ki subzi

Masur-Moong Dal

Rotis – I'll not elaborate on this. It should suffice to say I make only designer rotis.


Chop one large onion finely. Chop ½ kg of bhindi/okra finely. Take a large MW vessel and put in the onion and okra. Add 1/4 tsp of each of salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, amchur/mango powder, garam masala, jeera powder, hing/asafoetida, pepper. Add a tsp of oil and sprinkle 2 tsp of water over it. Mix well and microwave on high for 4 minutes. It should be done. If not, cook for one minute at a time. It should not take more than 5 minutes. A masaledhar, almost oil-free okra ready in minutes!
Masur-moong dal – Recipe will follow.

I tried this and it worked out great. I had two small changes. If you use frozen okra don't add water and second add a table sppon of bengal gram powder that helps if okra is sticky.

Looking forward to more microwave recipes.
