An individual wrote, “Amazing! Never imagined bhindi in this way. Is it cooked with the noodles or separately since it takes time?” To this, the original poster replied, “So at this joint one is supposed to select their pick of vegetables/meat and send it to the kitchen. The bhindi and other vegetables were sautéed together, and the noodles were added later. Wasn’t too raw but also not too cooked. Also learnt that bhindi is eaten raw by locals.” Another asked, “How was it?” “Wow,” expressed a third with a face with an open mouth emoticon.
