Bhindi do Pyaza Recipe | How to Make Restaurant Style Bhindi Do Pyaza | Bhindi do Pyaza is a popular vegetarian variant of traditional Chicken do Pyaza or Murg do Pyaza. There are many beliefs to why it is called Bhindi-do-Pyaza. Some believe that it is because we use Onions or Pyaz two times in this recipe it is called do-pyaza or twice onion. Some also believe that amount of onions in this recipe is double than that of regular Bhindi or Okra recipes, hence called do-pyaza or double the onion. Whatever be the reason, I believe it is double tastier than regular Bhindi or Okra recipes and I am sure you are going to love this delicious Bhindi-do-Pyaza too. Here I also want to mention that choosing right Bhindi or Okra (or Lady Finger) is very important for this Bhindi do Pyaza recipe.
While choosing Bhindi look for young and small pods as they are tender. Large ones are hard and tough to cook. Choose Bhindis or Okras that are unblemished, firm and bright in color. Also before cooking Okra wash them and dry them with paper napkin before chopping. This way Bhindi or Okra will not be loose or slimy while making bhindi do pyaza. Bhindi Do Pyaaza can be served in breakfast, lunch or dinner and goes well with Roti, Bhatura, Kulcha and even rice.
Bhindi do Pyaza can be made in many ways. This recipe of making bhindi do pyaza is my favorite as it is easy and also closest to restaurant style recipe. In the restaurants, mostly Bhindi or Okras are deep fried while making bhindi do pyaza but since we are making for home, we will just saute them on pan.
