Yesterday we got some fresh bhindi and a few raw mangoes from the farm. I had read Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe using this combination which sounded great , gave it my twist , added in the powdered spice and turned the recipe around - in my opinion gave it more flavors . Here is what I did .
200 Grams Bhindi - Cut in strips.
5-6 Tablespoons Peeled Raw Mango - Cut in strips.
1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds- Coarsely powdered.
1 Teaspoon Fennel Seeds- Coarsely powdered.
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper - Coarsely powdered.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste
1 Teaspoon Ginger Paste
Green Chilies to taste
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi
Heat oil add pepper , fennel and cumin powders , 30 seconds later add ginger garlic paste and another 30 seconds later add shallots , saute a minute or two , sprinkle some water , cook covered for one minute then add bhindi, chilies , salt and haldi . Saute lightly till half done , then tip in raw mango , mix and cook covered on low till bhindi is done , but firm.Last two minutes cook uncovered.
This came out delicious - you will love it I am sure .
