Crispy Fingers

Tried out this awesome dish for evening snacks today... and it was a hit! Try it out and tell me how it turned out. It is pretty easy and fun to make!

Serves: 3


Ladies Finger/Okra/Bindi - 20 nos. (small ones preferably)
Red Chilli Powder - 2 teaspoons
Jeera Powder - 1 teaspoon
Aamchur Powder - 1 teaspoon
Maida - 3-4 tablespoons
Water - 1/4 cup
Salt - to taste
Bread Crumbs - 1 cup
Oil - for frying


1. Slit whole okras vertically as shown in the picture.

2. In a plate, add red chilli powder, jeera powder, aamchur powder, salt and mix well.

3. Stuff the okras with the powder mix such that the okras don't split open.

4. Dissolve maida in water to form a paste like Dosa/Idli Batter.

5. Dip the stuffed okras into maida one-by-one and ensure there is a thick coating of the maida paste on every okra.

6. Roll the okras in bread crumbs. To ensure an even coat of the brad crumbs, roll them between your palms as well.

7. Deep fry the okras in oil.

8. Crispy Fingers are ready to be served! Serve Hot!
