Peanut Bhendi Fry

My husband was craving to eat bhendi fry with peanuts from a long time. Once you have children your priorities change and most of the time you are fulfilling their demands in terms of food.......not them anymore. So I decided I will cook something that he likes. As the saying goes the entry to a man's heart is through his stomach.

  • 1/2 kg Bhendi 
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Curry leaves
  • 1/2 cup roasted coarse powdered peanuts
  • 1/2 spoon dhaniya jeera powder
  • Red chilli powder
  • Kanda lasun masala
  • Hing
  • Salt 
  • Turmeric
  • Oil
Process->In a hot pan add oil, curry leaves, hing, turmeric, garlic cloves and stir. Add the bhendi and cook on a slow flame and add salt according to taste. When the bhendi is half cooked add red chilli powder, dhaniya jeera powder and kanda lasun masala. Mix it properly and finally add the peanut powder to it. Let the bhendi cook properly and the peanuts powder should also become little crunchy. Serve hot with chapati, phulka or curd rice.
