  • 2 tablespoons Anveshan Sunflower oil
  • ½ teaspoon black or brown mustard seeds
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 pounds bhindi, trimmed and sliced 1/2 inch thick (about 5 cups sliced)
  • 2 teaspoons Anveshan Stone-Ground Coriander powder
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon Anveshan Stone-Ground Turmeric powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon Anveshan Stone-Ground Red Chilli powder


  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute, covering the pan as needed to contain any splattering.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add onion and saute until it starts to turn brown. Let it cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add bhindi, increase heat to medium-high and cook until the 'goo' or mucilage from the okra starts to release, and the onion darkens, 4 to 6 minutes more.
  • Add coriander, salt, turmeric and chilli powder to taste; cook, stirring often, until the bhindi turns brown in spots and looks dry. Cook for 6 to 10 minutes more.
  • It's now ready to serve.
