  • 2. For the bhindi masala, the bhindis are cut quite big compared to the other bhindi sabzis.
  • 3. The green chilli is de-seeded, so that it is not too spicy while biting the chilli in the masala.
  • 4. Be mindful while adding the red chilli powder, as the green chillies are already added in the beginning.
