This Air Fryer Bhindi Okra – Air Fryer Kurkuri Bhindi recipe is one of my favorite easy snack ideas! Perfectly crisp air fried okra seasoned well and coated with rice flour, chickpea flour and spices without the added fat or calories! It is so simple and quick to throw together for an easy snack recipe. Okra loses its characteristic sliminess when roasted and develops a crunchy texture and a great flavor when cooked this way.
In the original recipe okra is deep-fried, however this is my attempt to make a healthy version in the Air Fryer
What ingredients to I need to make this Air Fryer Bhindi Okra – Air Fryer Kurkuri Bhindi?
Chickpea flour and rice flour form the marinade base.
30 pieces of whole okra pods for this recipe. The ends need to be trimmed and each pod needs to be sliced into 4 long pieces.
Steps to make this recipe:
Firstly, rinse and pat dry the okra completely.
Next, trim the ends and slice each pod into 4 long pieces.
Further, mix all the marinade ingredients with 2.5 tbsp oil. When mixed well add the sliced okra and mix the okra well with the marinade.
When you are ready to cook, grease the air fryer basket with oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, a little bit of oil on the bottom grate. Then, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the okra in a single layer.
Air fry the okra at 350°F for 7 minutes. Finally, toss and cook at 380°F for 4 minutes.
