Few days back, I had this at a friend’s place. It was one of the side dishes with biryani. But I enjoyed eating it as a snack. I am not sure whether I have followed the same recipe(I did not get a chance to ask my friend for the recipe) , but I have tried to recreate the same taste. I know it requires a lot of deep frying in oil and I was feeling a bit guilty during the entire process of making this recipe. But it tasted really awesome because of the nuttiness imparted by the cashews and also the crunchiness of bhindi and the grated coconut.
Chop the okra into tiny round pieces. Deep fry them in hot oil till they turn crispy and brown. Then heat some oil (1-2tbsp) in a pan. Add the cashew and fry them till they turn brown. Now add the onions and fry till they turn golden brown. Then add the grated coconut and fry them till they turn brown and crispy. Add salt and red chilly powder. Now add the fried bhindi and mix them together. Remove from flame after 5 minutes.
