Here’re Some Cooking Tips To Make The Perfect Bhindi Sabzi:
Bhagyashree also divulged some useful tips to make bhindi the right way. Take a look:
1. Never add salt while cooking as it will end up making it sticky.
2. Salt should be added just before serving the dish. (You can also add salt with other ingredients like onions and spices, just when the bhindi softens after cooking for some time.)
3. If you like to maintain the green colour, do not cover the pan with a lid. It may take a bit longer to cook but it definitely looks better.
4. Ideally, bhindi should never be overcooked to maintain its high nutritional value.
Bhagyashree also revealed that bhindi has “Vitamin E, Vitamin C, folate, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, copper, manganese and loads of dietary fibre.
It is an ideal food to maintain good gut health.”
We agree that bhindi offers a high nutritional value and benefits health in ways more than one. To top it all, it can be fashioned into some really tasty dishes. Want to know what all you can make with bhindi other than the usual pyaz bhindi sabzi? Click here.
