Kadai Bhindi / Bhendi ( Okra with capsicum, onion and tomatoes)


I went to my grocery store last Saturday and saw the bell peppers in different colors...red, orange, yellow, green and I could not stop myself from buying them. Then I really did not know what to prepare using these. When I was looking through my recipe book, I found this recipe for kadhai bhindi.
What you will need:
2 cups of okra cut into 1" pieces
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup of capsicum/peppers cut into squares(yellow, green, orange and red)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 - 4 green chillies
1 cup chopped onion
4 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp coarsely ground coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
3 tbsp oil
salt to taste

How to prepare:
Heat oil in a pan. Add the okra and fry in an open pan until slightly cooked. This is to remove the stickyness of the okra. Remove the okra and set aside.
In the same pan, heat the remaining oil and add cumin seeds. When the cumin seeds crackle, add the chopped onions. Add a little salt and let the onions cook for some time. Add the turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste and the green chillies. Cook for a minute and then add the chopped tomatoes. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and chilli powder. Cook until the tomatoes are soft. Now add the capsicum. Mix everything well. Add more salt if needed. Add the okra and cook until the okra is done. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot.
