Kukuri Bhindi (crispy Lady's Fingers)

This is my signature recipe. I was a total novice in cooking & the initial years of my marriage was the testing time for me. The first vegetable, I was asked to cook was ' Bhindi' . I was even poor in chopping vegetables. So Just like Potatoes I chopped the Bhindi & then washed it .....You can imagine the result. It all got stuck & I had to throw it all. I learned cooking slowly & gradually got better. This is my speciality recipe- kurkuri bhindi
