Jhatpat Bhendi Masala#Alphabet Challenge

I, was multi tasking today. The bread was baking in the oven, on the other side I was making phulkas for lunch and it was already past 12.30 in the noon and the sabji was not ready. I actually wanted to make Rajasthani Bhendi Masala but I knew that would take helluva of long time. So I made this Jhatpat Bhendi Masala. No stirring, no need to keep a watchful eye. Still this sabji became very tasty, my daughter's prompt comment on eating this sabji. Mummy this bhendi curry is tasting very nice which recipe this is. I smiled, very happy in mind and replied really, good .. enjoy it! So here is the recipe. 
250 Grams Bhendi
1 Large Onion
2 Tomatoes
1 Small piece Ginger
5 Flakes Garlic
1 Tablespoon Malai / Fresh Cream
1 Teaspoon Chilly powder
1 Teaspoon Coriander - Cumin powder
½ Teaspoon Goda masala
½ Teaspoon Kitchen King masala
½ Teaspoon Magic Masala
¼ Turmeric powder
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 + 1 Tablespoon Oil
Salt to taste

Wash, wipe and cut the bhendi into ½ inch roundels. 
In a nonstick pan add a tablespoon oil and the bhendi and fry on high flame stirring off and on till stickiness vanishes and lightly brown in color. Switch off the flame and keep aside.

Grind the onion, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and malai together to a fine paste.

In a kadai add 2 tablespoons oil and the ground past with ½ cup water and place it on high flame till it comes to a boil, cover with a lid and keep on slow flame till oil floats.
