Bhindi or Okra is one of the frequently made item at my home. It does not take a lot of time for preparation or cooking. Okra is also very delicious when you cook them properly, and very healthy also. I know its tough to convince your kids to eat vegetables like okra, but if you are making dishes like Bhindi Masala today, they will finish the meal for sure.
