Back to Basics: Nepali Style Okra (Bhindi) Fry Recipe!!

A week ago, I got an email from a reader asking me to post recipe for Nepali Style Okra (Bhindi) Fry. My ultimate goal is to help people and make them realize that cooking is actually fun and anyone can do it. Also, since these days most of us come to foreign land at very young age, there is a minimal chance for us to know recipes of every single dish we crave for. When I was going through the email from my reader who requested this recipe, I felt so glad and at same time was super excited to share this with you all. Here you go guys, below is the recipe for the very basic Nepali Style Okra (Bhindi) Fry :)
