 Tips :

1) Make sure you dry  the okra completely before chopping.

2) Do not cover the skillet while cooking or else the okra/ bhindi will become mushy and slimy. Okra is known to shrink in size considerably once cooked .

3) Salt is added towards the end. If added earlier , the okra tends to become mushy. The spices can increased / decreased to taste.

4) Adding the lemon juice helps us reduce the sliminess / sticky threads (as shown in the image below ) of okra.
