The amchoor (mango) in it sounds great - I usually use lime juice near the end for sour taste instead. Perhaps 'cause of my pitta, I rarely use chilis, leaning on a pinch only of cayenne, and love garlic cooked to sweetness in it - the onions sound good - though I have to avoid with my ayurvedic postpartum clients - that and the chiles. Hing works in small amounts to replace some of the grounding taste of the onions. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

The Bhindi appears yummy and its presentation is cool. Red tomato and green corriander leaves are accentuating the visual appeal. I cook okara a lot because it is easy to make. I a gonna give it a shot but with only 1/2 tbsp chilli powder.
