Cooking with Okra 👩🏻‍🍳

Below is our spiced okra recipe. 

Okra is slimy, astringent and has a slight bitter taste. 

Cooked Okra is best for Vata and Pitta constitution. The unctuous and slimy qualities can be aggravating for Kapha dosha if not cooked with digestive 🌿 spices.

Okra has high levels of fibre, encouraging optimal bowel movements 😮. The mucus and slimy texture can help to soothe the digestive channels.

Bhindi is the Hindi word for okra. When cooking bhindi make sure to remove excess moisture. 

This can be done by patting it dry before chopping it into small pieces.
