This process takes a good 10 minutes.Once tender, add in the tomatoes. Cook the bhindi masala along with the tomatoes with the lid slightly ajar.As the tomatoes will release its liquids and this will cause the bhindi to turn mushy; hence we keep its lid open so the excess moisture evaporates.Once you notice the tomatoes have also turned soft; add in the turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and if required more salt to taste.Stir well until all the ingredients are well combined and sauté for another 3 to 4 minutes with its lid open. Turn off the heat and transfer the Bhindi Tamatar Ki Sabzi to a serving dish.Serve the Bhindi Masala Recipe along with Phulka and Lauki Chana Dal for a weekday meal.
