Crispy Ajwain Okra (Bhindi)

Sending this to my event "CWS - Ajwain" started by Priya of "Priya's Easy & Tasty Recipes". Priya has a lovely blog with yummy recipes. Do have a look.

Ingredients :
Okra : 500 grams
Gram flour (Besan) : 1/2 Cup
Ajwain : 1 tsp
Turmeric : 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder : 1/2 tsp
Chaat Masala : 3-4 tsp
Salt : To Taste
Lime : 1
Oil For Frying

Recipe :
Slit the okra lengthwise. I had to use frozen okra and it was chopped. I fried it in a pan with 1 tbsp oil for 4-5 minutes till the okra became soft and wasn't frozen any more. If you are using fresh, then just continue on next step.

Put the okra in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle gram flour, turmeric, red chilli powder and chaat masala on it. Season with salt just before frying or else the okra will release water and become soggy.

Heat the cooking oil on a medium flame. Do not heat the oil too much as okra burns quickly when deep fried.

Deep fry the okra a little at a time, until crisp and drain on paper towels.

Garnish with the lime juice and serve with plain boiled rice and your favorite Daal.
