Storage Suggestions:

  • This bhindi dish can easily be frozen in an airtight container for later use. Be sure to thaw it out before consumption.
  • You can also freeze fresh bhindi. It’s quite difficult to find bhindi here in my town so I usually buy them in bulk, use some in the dishes and freeze some for later use. I thoroughly wash them, dry them with a clean towel, slice them and then freeze in a sealed container or freezer bags. They can be stored up to 6 months in freezer.

To avoid making slime free okra:

  • It should be completely dry before cutting, so wash it a night before cooking (if possible) or dry it well with the paper towel.
  • Don’t stir continuously while cooking.
  • Adding lemon juice also helps remove slime from the okra.
  • Don’t cover the pan with lid after adding okra.
