Hello Foodies,
          Deliciously crispy, seasoned air fryer Bhindi/Okra Fry is my favorite dish
nowadays. This is one of healthy, crispy must try Okra Fry air fryer recipe. Fried foods are full of saturated fats, and they will not help you in your fitness goals. So using air fryer for frying dishes helps to cut down the calories by 70-80%.
I love fried food but don't like the greasy smell it leaves in the kitchen and also it's not the healthiest option to snack on. Air fryer is like a great way to Fry foods without all the downsides of deep frying. So far, I have made Fries, Mawa gujiya, Okra fry, chicken wings, falafel in it and will share more recipes of air fryer. It's been just 6-8 weeks, and I am ridiculously loving this my new kitchen gadgets GoWISE Air Fryer. Just about everything that I have tried to cook in it has turned out pretty good.
           Okra fry is the most successful dish I have been preparing in air fryer, and they get the crispiness of deep frying without all the oil and are crispier than oven baking. Best thing is it needs 10 minutes to cook and clean up is super easy. Using air fryer gives crispness without overcooking okra. So try them as a side for your favorite entree or serve as it is with chapati or with roti(bhakri). Either way, it tastes amazing and is the perfect addition for any meal. I sometimes like to just make it for weeknight dinner and serve with phulkas. This is one of those recipes you will use weekly. Just don't forget to add turmeric powder. No slime at all! It's naturally vegan, gluten-free and healthiest okra fry recipe. So simple to do. Would make a great garnish or side dish for dal chaval. So let's get started.
