  3. Add all the other ingredients,except oil.

  7. Heat oil and add like sprinkling the mixture and fry in a medium flame.Turn in between to ensure even cooking.
  8. DSC_0627

Notes:

  • My mom in law adds a tsp or 2 tsps of curd instead of water for binding the flour. It gives even more crispier fries.
  • If you are not adding enough water to bind the flour to the ladies finger, the fries will come out so white and wont turn golden while frying and it spoils the oil(the flour).
  • Adding more water also will turn the fries chewy. Do not add corn flour more too than mentioned.

The ladies finger gets cooked with a sound in oil and when the sound ceases,and becomes light and crispy drain the fries to kitchen towel.

  23. can't believe I missed this post! I have one question though. When I fry okra, they tend to stick together a lot. Does that happen with this varuval?

  24. Nags, Just make sure that you add water very very little,these fries anyways don't stick much! :)

  31. Normally before using lady's finger for poriyal or sambar. ..what will you do to remove stickiness after cutting ladies finger? In tamil we used to say valavalapu

    1. Nothing, as we cook, it will go by itself. Before cutting make sure no water is there in the ladies finger, if its there, pat dry with a towel.As water makes more kozha kozha
