Bhindi Masala Recipe

Bhindi masala is a spicy and dry indian preparation of lady's fingers that can be served with rice or rotis. Made with slit lady's fingers stuffed with a masala mix of onions, chili powder, turmeric powder, dry mangpo powder and aniseed powder, the bhindi masala is one of my favorite recipe that is quite easily prepared and very savory.
