Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Stuffed okra (Bhareli bhindi)

    • metacritic on May 19, 2021

      These are good though I think they need cooking with more oil than the recipe calls for, at a pretty high heat, and for longer. But the core idea here is good and reminds me of the okra at a terrific little restaurant in Bandra that I often crave.

  • Crispy okra raita

    • metacritic on December 19, 2021

      A little more work than some, but well worth the labor, as I recall.
