This is very delicious bhindi masala recipe which I have tried for the first time and it came out to be very tasty. Bored of eating the same type of bhindi Sabzi everyday so decided to do some invention and made this recipe. It is very easy to make recipe which requires very few ingredients.

Bhindi is a favorite vegetable of everyone especially kids so try to make different types of it and let your kids enjoy their favorite veggie with different taste. Just take care if you are making it for kids then adjust the quantity of spices and green chillies accordingly. You can serve masala bhindi with chapatti or rice. You can have this during lunch or dinner and even it is perfect tiffin recipe.
