  • About

Bhindi is Hindi for okra. I apologize for the rhyme but it is impossible to avoid unless you use one of the other, mostly African names for the plant that have followed its peregrinations around the globe. The main alternative is gumbo, the U.S. Creole reflex of the Angolan Bantu kingombo, which led to quingombo in Portuguese or quimbombό in Cuban Spanish, * or gombo in French.<
