The Hindi name for Okra/Ladyfinger is Bhindi and for Onions is Pyaz. ‘Do’ in Hindi means twice or double. This recipe uses double the amount of onions than what is used generally. Either the onions are doubled or add twice during cooking. Hence the name Bhindi Do Pyaza.

Bhindi whilst cooking sometimes becomes slimy. In this post, towards the end, in the tips section, I have mentioned how you can minimize the sliminess and stickiness while cooking Bhindi.

It goes very well with chapatis or rotis. It also goes well as a side dish with Dal Tadka & Steamed Rice.

How to make Bhindi Do Pyaza

  • Always rinse the okra first and then wipe them dry and then chop them. If you just wash them and then chop them they become sticky, while chopping itself. Even while cooking them, they become slimy and mushy.
  • Avoid adding water when making a recipe exclusively with okra as they become too sticky and mushy. If your recipe uses water, then its better to first lightly shallow fry the okra and then use them in the recipe.
  • I have not covered the pan in this recipe as I do not want the bhindi do pyaza to be slimy and sticky.
  • Adding a sour ingredient like dry mango powder or tamarind paste reduces the sliminess of okra.
