Anu's Kitchen Chutney

Okra Chutney | Bendekaya Chutney | Bhindi Chutney

Recently I got to know about the famous Andhra recipe “Bendekaya chutney”. Since we like Andhra food a lot, I wanted to give a try. I slightly changed the Okra chutney recipe of Priya and ended up with my version. Here is the hot Bhindi chutney – Okra chutney!!

  • Add the red chilies, coriander seeds, Asafetida and fry them in low flame.
  • Allow them to cool. Meanwhile, deep fry okra in oil.

Bhindi chutney looks delicious. Never heard of this before! Sounds easy to prepare. Will try out and let u know how it goes.

Anu! Good to see this post on Bhindi Chutney which I announced on thin air and vanished for a while!

All: Would you like to explore this: A small variation from Chef Anu’s version. Instead of adding coriander seeds, add a nice fresh bunch of coriander leaves! The taste is heavenllllly!!! And you could add green chillies instead of dry red chillies. Optionally can add a dash of jaggery (to get a sweet/sour/spice punch!)

Wanna explore?
