Bhindi Kebab

Today I post “Bhindi Kebab” Or Bhindi Tikki” whatever you can say… It’s a very unique version of bhindi which I tried in my kitchen. This time Srivalli choose Calcium Rich Food theme in Blogging Marathon 19 in Group 3. Hope my viewers love this version.
Bhindi known as Okra, Lady’s finger and Gumbo is flowering plant in the mallow family.
It’s really so tasty and easy to prepare with full of nutrition and very low cal Kebab or tikki. You can serve this kebab as a tikki with traditional way of tikki with chutney and curd.
Okra is a popular health food due to its high fibre, vitamin C, and folate content. Okra is also known for being high in antioxidants and is also often eaten as part of a weight loss diet since it is both fat-free and cholesterol-free Okra is also a good source of calcium and potassium.
