    6. Once slightly cooled, add hing, jeera and mustard seeds to the oil.
    7. When mustard seeds start to crackle, add the bhindis, and mix well so that the oil coats all bhindis.
    8. add more salt if required.
    9. Cover and cook for 4-5 mins on low flame. After 5 mins stir the ingredients without breaking the bhindis.
