            Hi Ranjana,
            There are 2 things that you should take care of whiel making Bhindi:
            1. When you wash the Bhindi (before even cutting and starting the cooking process), you should make sure that you dry it completely. There should be no water or water vapors on Bhindi’s skin. Use a clean cotton towel to rub and dry and then let it dry at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
            2. When you start the cooking process, do cook the Bhindi for 2-3 minutes without adding spices. This will make sure that the extra water, if any, gets dried by the cooking heat. You can follow our Bhindi recipe here:

            Let us know if you have more questions. Glad to help you.
