The key to cooking delicious simple Indian-style bhindi fries

Always wash and dry the bhindi before chopping it. Chop the top and tail of each bhindi/okra. Cut the okra into 1″ pieces and spread it on a plate for a few minutes, about 3-4 minutes so that it is free of moisture.
Cook the okra over high heat for the first 3 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium low. Do not put a lid on while the bhindi is cooking.
Add lemon juice or a tablespoon of buttermilk for the first few minutes to reduce drooling.
Do not mix the bhindi often as it tends to become mushy.
Add salt towards the end of the cooking process.
