Easy Bhindi Masala

Bhindi (Okra) Masala

We love okra – it is packed with nutrients and vitamins and is so delicious. In this dish we bought frozen ready chopped okra from Tesco for an easy midweek side dish. We had this with our potato and broccoli curry but you can enjoy with any meal or as a main.
