Punjabi Bhindi Masala

Bhindi Masala is one recipe that I do often other than aloo bhindi bhujiya and it's goes so well with roti/paratha or poori is big plus point.  Recently I started doing it Punjabi way of this with addition of few more extra spices and the result is just better. This is a perfect lunch box recipe if you do parallel work then the preparation time will be less as I normally do.  You can make this as side dish with dal/sambar or even rasam doesn't have to be only with paratha, I also eat this with plain steamed rice, it's just me.  Don't miss the kasoori methi in any case, that's add that extra zing to this simple curry that once you try it you will love it.
