Oven Baked Kurkuri Bhindi / Baked Crunchy Ladiesfingers

One day I was talking on phone to my parents back home in India, after some chit chat, my dad said one sec, mom wants to tell you something, those kind of sentences makes me worried , about their health or some bad news. So when Mom came on line, she said Beta , we saw one recipe on tv and it looks so good and sound so good, we wanted to let you know, if you want to try it, I was relieved that its nothing serious. Then I asked for what's the name and recipe and it was kurkuri bhindi and she explained me receipe, I said its very old and everyone is making it? so my dad said why don't you make something different out of it and that makes my brain started thinking , I said ok will see.  Since then I didn't got bhindi, because it was not that good, I wanted long, thin ones. So when I saw nice bhindi in store, got it and made it in the evening for my dinner, but it was so crispy so instead of having it with usual dal roti dinner, I had it with Rajma chawal and top it with crunchy bhindi. It was delicious, you can make some dip with yogurt and have it as party appetizer too.

Ingredients :

10-15 Bhindis / Ladies fingers
1 tbsp. Besan / Chickpea flour
1 tsp. Turmeric powder
1 half  onion , match stick chopped  (optional)
1 tbsp. Red chili powder
1 tsp. Chat powder
Salt as per taste
1 tsp. Black salt or Aam chur powder (Dry mango powder)


Heat the oven at 350 F.
Take your baking dish. Wash and clean your bhindi.
Take Bhindi / Ladies Fingers and cut the top off. Cut it in half and make two slices of one half and same with other half so you will have four slices from one Bhindi.
Add one by one powder masala and last besan and mix it.
If adding onion, add it now.

Leave it out for 10-15 minutes.
After that put it in oven and cook till its nice and crunchy.
Meanwhile take it out  from time to time and mix it so it cooks from all side.
It took 30 minutes to get my desire crunchiness , but its depend upon you and oven.
Enjoy it as side dish or appetizer with any dip or just raita.

  2. oh wow..oven baked bhindis look so crisp and no more deep frying...looks tempting

    1. Thanks Gloria and sure let me know, have a blessed lent

  3. Love it. Nice turnout. Never baked bhindis but I surely am gonna make for our veg lunch.

  4. 350 degree, wont burn vegetables.It is going to black at last. as you said try to stir in between but 30 minutes at 350... vegetables are looking black and roasted instead of crisp.. so any solution..

    1. okra has lot of moisture, so it has to burn to make it crispy. Yes mine are little burned because I was doing something and it sit in the oven , so when you make it , be careful.

  5. Very yummy and healthy too ! Nice Idea !
