Ladies Finger Curry, also known as Bhindi Masala, is a popular dish from Indian cuisine. The base of the curry is the lady's finger, or okra, which is cooked in a mixture of aromatic spices like turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder, and cumin seeds, along with onion, garlic, and tomatoes. This dish is especially popular in the northern parts of India and pairs well with rice or roti. It is a good source of fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and folate.
