Kurkuri Bhindi/Okra in Air Fryer

Good Evening to all the readers. Today I am going to share "Kurkuri Bhindi (Okra)" recipe that can be made in few minutes in AirFryer. It is easy to prepare and does not take much time also.

What is more special about it is that I have prepared it in Philips Airfryer gifted to me by my nani :) . I got it two days back and since then I am surfing and searching about all the items that can be made in this. I have already tried Potato Wedges, Moong Dal Pakora in air fryer and both have come out really nice. They were crisp, well cooked and that too when I am using such little amount of oil (almost no oil you can say). The product has indeed exceeded my expectation. The best part is you don't have to sweat standing in front of the "Kadhai" ;)

Generally we prepare Kurkuri bindi by coating it in a mixture of spices, gram flour and then deep frying on high flame till it is crisp. Air fryer saves you from the deep frying step. It not only saves oil but also gives you a healthier guilt-free version of Kurkuri bhindi. You can adjust the spices little bit as per your taste.Please don't consider that I am advertising any product or brand. I am just sharing my experience  and dishes that can be prepared using that appliance :).
