vendakkai-curry-recipe
Vendakkai AKA Okra/ bhendi is one of the veggie I love to eat,especially this recipe I learnt from my MIL is so yummy with sambhar rice! She in turn got special tips for this recipe from my FIL ;) That is to fry ladies finger in generous oil to get a perfect and delicious curry.

Vendakkai curry recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch/ Side dish
Prep Time15 mins     |  Cook time: 25 mins     Serves: 4

Ingredients

Ladies finger/vendaikai - 22

Onion - 1

Tomato - 2

Sambhar powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

Salt - As needed

Sesame oil - 3 tbsp


To Temper

Oil - 1 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Ulutham paruppu/ Urad dal - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. Wash and pat dry the ladies finger and cut into desired bite size pieces.
  2. Cut ladiesfingers
  3. Chop the onion and tomatoes finely and set aside. Heat a pan with the sesame oil and fry the cut ladies finger in medium flame stirring now and then until the ladies finger starts turning brown here and there and the viscous nature of it goes away. Keep aside.
  4. Fried
  5. Heat oil  for tempering and splutter the mustard,add urad dal and the curry leaves. Add the chopped onion and fry till transparent.
  6. temper,fry  onion
  7. Add the chopped tomatoes and add required salt,fry till the tomatoes turn mushy.
  8. fry tomato till mushy
  9. Add the fried ladies finger,sambhar powder and turmeric powder and mix well.
  10. Add ladies finger
  11. Sprinkle some water if needed  and mix well and cook covered in medium low flame. Water from tomato itself is enough for this to get cooked, if adding water just a tbsp of water is enough.
  12. cook covered
  13. Stir in between for even cooking. After the ladies finger gets cooked, keep the flame in medium and let the masala get brown and oil oozes out form the curry. Turn the curry occasionally to get the browning effect. Top with oil if it sticks in the pan.

Notes

  • Choose young ladies finger while buying(if you break the tail part,it should break crisp)
  • If the ladies finger is very old,big and have so much of seeds in it,its not young and it will break while you cook and wont be tasty.

Transfer to the serving bowl and enjoy as accompaniment for rice!

I updated the pictures with Indian Okra while the step wise pictures are the same old pictures that I used a different variety. So the look may vary.
