Bhendi Fry is stir fried okra that is slit and stuffed with spice mix such as garam masala and other locally available ground spices. This dish is stir-fried or sautéed slightly, which is distinct from batter-fried okra, which involves deep frying.

It can be served as a side dish in accompaniment with steamed rice and dal or with chapati as a form of sabzi.
