Bhindi Do Pyaza 22

Bhindi Do pyaza is a perfect vegetarian and gluten-free side dish using Ladies Finger (bhindi/okra) and double the amount of Onions. Also it is one of the popular vegetarian recipes from north-Indian cuisine.

The literal translation for ‘do pyaza’ is double onions (do means double in Hindi language and pyaza means onion). So any do pyaza dish has basically twice the amount of onions than what one would normally use.

Here is the Bhindi Do Pyaza which includes lots of okra sauteed with fragrant onions and seasonings.

It is super simple and tastes great as a side dish with paratha, naan, or even plain and simple roti.
