• Bhindi tends to get sticky while cooking, to avoid that, do not cover the pan while cooking. This will help to dry out stickiness without the presence of steam.
• Cook the Bhindi on medium flame with stirring for restaurant style results.
• I cooked Bhindi separately without salt just to retain green color and make it crispier.
