Imp Tip: Mix all the ingredients to the bhindi only when you are ready to fry it as the salt added to it releases moisture which can make the bhindi soggy.

Another small variation can be that you slice two onions length wise and deep fry them in the same oil till translucent and later mix it with the Bhindi. Sounds Interesting...Do leave a comment if you like it.
