Namrata Shirodkar also shared the complete recipe of bhendi poriyal – a stir-fried bhindi dish sauteed with some ground spices with a hint of south Indian flavours from mustard seeds and fresh coconut.

Twinkle Khanna seemed to be impressed with the recipe and commented on the post with – “I am going to give this a shot! Looks delicious”.

Explaining why she opts for bhendi poriyal, Namrata wrote – “This dish is their favourite because it satisfies their Indian food cravings, so it’s on the kids menu once every week. I like to keep it simple with what I feed them. A healthy and wholesome meal with small indulgences. A tip that I always stick by is using a spoonful of pure ghee or cold-pressed coconut oil while cooking. It’s non-greasy and easy on their tiny stomachs!”
