Bhendi Fry


Opened the refrigerator the other day and saw some bhendi peeping out of the bag....Wow!! I exclaimed with a thought of preparing 'bharwa bhendi'....bharwa's my favorite!! I took out the bhendi to wash & all my hopes turned into a failure....very less it was!! Not even 1/4 kg. My mind not being ready to eat the regular bhendi sabzi....what clicked my mind was "Bhendi Fry"....a wonderful medley of crunchy bhendi, potatoes, onion & all time hit with very less bhendi at hand!! Here it goes...
