I usually make okra fry only. Wanted to try something new with this and when I came across this recipe, I gave it a go…
Was different to the regular dish and can be done in a jiffy. It’s an easy to make lunch box recipe.
Serves – 2; Preparation time – 30 mins
Okra / lady’s fingers – ¼ kg
Large Onion – 1 (cubed)
Medium Tomato – 1 (cubed)
Chilli powder – ¼ teaspoon
Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder – ½ teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 2-3 pinches
Garam masala powder – ¼ teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste – ½ teaspoon
Oil – 2 tablespoons
Dried fenugreek leaves – 1 teaspoon (optional)
Salt – to taste
Wash the okra ,and cut it into slices. Keep this under the fan overnight. This will dry the okra and it won’t be slimy.
Heat oil in a pan. Add onion, ginger garlic paste and fry till onion becomes golden brown
Add the chopped tomatoes and fry till tomato become soft
Add all the powders along with salt n stir till the oil oozes out.
Shift the prepared masala to a plate, let it cool.
Once cooled, blend it to a smooth paste in mixie with little water
Heat one more tbsp oil n fry the okras.
Add the blended paste to the okra in the pan n stir it nicely so that the masala coats the okra. Add the dry fenugreek leaves n mix well
Cook the okra till it become soft.
Serve as side dish for rice.
