A very simple dish from me. I love this veggie from my childhood, thats why may be I am so intellect ( ;) LOL). I will buy this vegetable only when it is so tender, there will be no compromise on this. This time I got a good tender vendaikkai, hence I thought of posting this fry.
Okra - 500 gms
Curd - 2 tbsp
Chilly Powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Wash the Okra and clean it with a towel to remove the water.
Cut it into small pieces, mix it with chilly and coriander powder and marinate it dry for half an hour.
In the kadai add 1 tbsp oil and season it with mustard seeds and urad dhal. Then add the marinated okra.
Saute once and then add the curd. The okra will stick to each other once we start frying, so inorder to seperate them we are using curd.
Dont add any water and close it with a lid. Okra will get cooked in that moisture itself.
Saute well often so that it will not stick to the kadai. After switching off the stove, you add the salt and mix well, so that the salt spreads everywhere. For a better fry, add the salt at the end.
Serve hot with Rice and Sambar.
