Bhindi Bhaji

Bhindi Bhajis are okra patties. Okra is used widely in Indian cuisine. Although it is quite high in disolved sugars, 'Ladies Fingers' are a very good source of fibre, vitamins A, C, K and B6, calcium, magnesium and Manganese, a good source of protein, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and copper, as well as being low in saturated fat and sodium, and very low in cholesterol.

Bhindi Bhajis are good as a shared starter served with mango chutney or atchar, or as a side dish.
