Bhindi Do Pyaza is authentically a punjabi side dish which goes on well with chapathi, roti, naan and so on. Here, in this recipe, as the name itself suggests we use bhindi twice the quantity of onions. I have already published some of the okra recipes like bhindi sambar, sauteed bhindi and so on. Ladies finger is one of the best vegetables for the diabetic people since it is rich in fiber and iron. When this vegetable is chopped, it tends to be very sticky and so it is very necessary to boil it along with tamarind paste or amchur powder .
