Malvani Kurkuri Bhindi Recipe is a delicious lady finger recipe using the aromatic malvani masala from the coastal region of Maharashtra. The malvani masala is pungent and quite aromatic as compared to the regular garam masala.

The use of stone flower and Nagkesar or Mesua Ferrea gives it a very distinctive flavour and aroma. This masala is usually used while preparing the non vegetarian dishes in the coastal region of Konkan and Maharashtra, giving it a very rustic flavour.

Here, we have given a little twist to the regular crispy bhindi recipe by flavouring it with malvani masala and adding roasted peanuts to give it a nice crunchy texture.

Serve the Malvani Kurkuri Bhindi Recipe along with Steamed Rice and Dal Tadka for a simple yet yummy weeknight dinner.
