Masala Fried Okra (Masala Bhindi Fry)

This is one of my favorite ways to eat okra. We always make this dish when making Pahari food. We usually cook using mustard oil but you can substitute with any oil of your choice.

This spicy, tangy recipe is right up my alley and it goes so well with all the deliciously gravied dishes that make Pahari food really divine.
