Can have too many of Mom’s recipes can we.. 🙂
Mom made Okra and onion subzi the other day. Hubbs loved it and of course Mom and Dad like it. My sister can live on Okra 5 days a week and I cannot stand more than 1 tiny piece :). Preferences. Mom has a few Bhindi recipes up her sleeve. So I stopped everyone in their tracks and took some pictures before they all finished lunch.
And did you hear? Vegan MOFO is in September this year. Thats like tomorrow.. Gaah. I wont have any time to think till mid August and then I might just explode with the stress of mofo already.
No Themes planned yet, no recipe and posts thought of.
Last year I did a Pizza theme… 20+ different Pizzas, with 20+ different crusts! and man it was nerve wracking trying to come up with the different crusts:)
Throw me some ideas will you.. What would you like to see this year in the month of september. Some fun but attainable theme ideas please:)
Below.. lunch with the Bhindi Subzi… Mung Dal, Okra, Mint Cilantro Chutney, Kachumbar Salad (Chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, salt, pepper, lemon juice), Roti flatbread.
Also, I truly apologize for not visiting blogs this past month. It has been a crazy 2 months and continuing! No end in sight yet..

Hi Richa! Do you think I could make this from frozen okra? Or should it really be fresh? I have a huge bag of frozen okra and want to try it in all your bhindi recipes 🙂 This one looks so tasty and easy!
Delicious. Always looking for okra recipes when the garden provides us a daily bunch of okras! This is very good and simple thanks

can’t get fresher than that! thanks Claire
my fav recipe with okra. thank you!
Always turns out perfectly!
I cooked this yesterday. Very nice okra dish (unlike you, I do love okras, and had just found beautiful ones). The recipe was quick and easy, and very satisfying. When I am out of ideas of what to cook, I can always count on your blog! Thank you, and a happy new year,
I so love your recipes,
But I cannot do okra.. I am not a fan..
All of your posts!!
I got used to eatin’ okra turkish style, but tomorrow I am more in mood for ur recipe. It looks awesome! Offtopic: Most of the time when i see vegan recipes I’m lik meh.. 🙂 cuz i have a rich background and am kinda cocky :p sarma, dolma, icli kofte, kisir, and many many more I am now a sophisticated cook (oh my god people change 😉 ) but with ur recipes Im like yeah I like this! Have already requested my shoppigwebsite to send me an emal asa your book can be preordered! Greetingz, Abdullah
I love okra – as long as it’s not overcooked and slimy! It looks so pretty, too, don’t you think? I wonder if I could grow it if I saved some seeds? Now there’s a thought:)
The Peace Patch
goodgolly that looks delicious! I haven’t eaten okra in a gazillion years but you have inspired me to dig in again!
As for September ideas, maybe you could do wraps? Naan wraps and tortilla wraps and collard/cabbage/greens wraps. Radicchio wraps? Pancakes wraps!
Perfect time for them because they tuck well into school lunches and soccer snack bags.
Thanks for the recipe…cheers!

I cooked okra once and hated it , maybe it would be different if I actually had someone prepare it for me that knew a thing or two about okra….since that one time I have not tried it, too bad of an experience!
i have never eaten fresh okra- only frozen, and i didn’t like it. i have to believe fresh is so much tastier, especially in this dish where it has a crispness to it. never too many mommy recipes!
i can’t wait to see what you bring to the mofo table this year!
Okra is hard to get by over here and I hardly have ideas what to make with it. When I loved in a small university town in the west o Germany, an Indian restaurant had an okra dish I always ordered. But yours looks so much better! All those caramelized onions!
Glue and Glitter
I am with your sis – I could live on okra. This looks so good!
It’s so fun to see your mom’s recipes! They look so good. Okra grows like mad out here, but I’ve never eaten it fresh. I suppose I must try…but I still have the memory of slimy okra chunks in Campbell’s Soup from when I was a kid!
I’m stressing about MoFo, too! Excited, but exhausted already :-). I’m sure you will come up with something wonderful!
Beautiful photography and scrumptious food!
yummy and healthy…

When I head to Seattle in the future, can I stop by? Hehe, I’m in too love with your vegan Indian cuisine.
you dont need to ask! you are always welcome at my house Rika!:))
Hey Miss Richa! I can’t believe VeganMofo is coming soon! How about doing a collection of gluten-free bread recipes or a multicultural twist in Indian recipes? Hehe! There are so many wonderful ideas for your VeganMofo theme. I will probably be focusing on traveling and eats in Buenos Aires. I leave for Spain soon next week. Your okra and onion stir-fry dish looks delish! Where can I find a recipe for the Roti flatbread? I’ve been addicted to making naan bread over the past two weeks! It takes loads of practice! Have a wonderful day!
Hi Rika, You can use this recipe. https://showmethecurry.com/breads/rotli-roti-indian-bread-recipe.html
I use Whole wheat pastry flour, water, salt and a little oil to make the dough, roll it out, and cook on a pan on stovetop. It is important to use wheat pastry flour, since the whole wheat flour we get in the US is high gluten and doestn work out well while rolling into thin rotis. The wheat flour we get in an Indian store here or in India is low-gluten wheat milled into a flour. I should do a post on rotis.:)
Thanks for the link!
