Bhindi Basar

Note: This dish has been made for a contest, ‘Mother’s Recipe: Innovative Recipe Challenge.’

The contest required me to use ready-to-cook packets that were sent by Mother’s Recipe team. In the dish below, I have used Vegetable Biryani Mix. Since, these were ready-to-cook packets; the biggest challenge was to use them in an innovative way as the ingredients were pre-packed.

I used it our, Sindhi’s popular dish Bhindi Basar. Basar, is how we pronounce onions in Sindhi. Here is Bhindi Basar with a twist.


  • Chopped Bhindi (Lady Finger) – 1.2 Kg
  • Chopped Onion – 4 medium sized
  • Mother’s Recipe Vegetable Biryani Mix – 1 packet
  • Curd – 2 tablespoon
  • Water – ¼ cup
  • Oil – For frying & 1 tablespoon


  • Heat oil in a pan and fry chopped Bhindi until it is crisp or changes color. (Do not over fry them as it will lose it taste)
  • Keep the fried Bhindi aside.
  • In same pan or different one, heat one-tablespoon oil.
  • Add chopped onions and cook them till they are tender or translucent.
  • In a bowl, mix Vegetable Biryani Mix, curd and water to for semi-thick consistency.
  • Pour this mixture in the onions. Add fried Bhindi and let it cook for 5 minutes on slow flame so that it is mixed with Bhindi and Onion.
  • Serve hot with roti and rice.
