i would suggest if adding aamchur do not add lime juice. the masala over all becomes too tangy and sore. i personally will add pinch of sugar and coconut and pinch of garlic in the masala. if besan is roasted before use, tastes even better.

Hey Chef, I have a different experience to tell u. I made this Bhindi yesterday. It was awesome. Its a good dish for health concious people also as it just took 2 Tsp. of oil to cook 18 pc. of Bhindi, Though i would like to mention I took a little less i.e. 3 tb sp of Sambar Masala instead of 4 & avoided the letter onion addition. Its going to be a weekend party dish (Part of Starters). Thanks.
