Bhindi Do Pyaza / Okra with double onions

This is a very famous Punjabi dish. Okra with the double the amount of onions which is the translation of the dish. So When you are making this dish you have to make double the amount of the white or red or yellow your preferable onions in this dish. I used white onions. I like to cut okra for this in long match stick sizes so it looks good and with that you can cut onions also same way.

Ingredients :

2 cups of cut okra match stick sizes
2 big onions match stick size chopped
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. jeera (cumin seeds)
1 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder
salt as per taste
2 green chilies  matchstick chopped
1 tsp. Amchur powder or chat masala as per your wish
3 tsp. of oil (depend upon the quantity adjust oil , this needs little more oil)
chopped coriander leaves for garnish


Heat a oil in wide pan. Add cumin and kalonji in it. Allow the seeds to crackle.
Then add onions and green chilies in it. And cook till onions are tender.
Add the okra and all the spices and cook without covering the lid on medium flame till bhindi is done.
When its done, sprinkle some coriander leaves and serve hot with fukla rotis, dal , rice and cucumber raita.
