Ladyfinger or bhindi is one of those things that your either love or just don’t like. This recipe is so good it will turn even those who aren’t fond of it into stringent lovers of the vegetable. Cooked along with cumin seeds and simple powdered spices this recipe tastes good with simple chapattis. This is my younger daughter's favourite thing to eat and so we end up having it at home at least once a week and sometimes add small onions to the preparation.
