Okra (lady's Finger) Fry

Okra also known as Lady's Finger, Bhindi, Vendakai (tamil)...etc. I like okra when it is fried, if u add to gravy it will be sticky!!!. It is one of popular south indian vegetable. It mostly used mor kozhumbu, sambar etc.. I like this particular recipe coz it doesn't have any spices but taste very good with rasam and yogurt.


2 lbs okra or lady's finger

2 tsp redchilli powder

2 tsp oil

salt to taste


Wash and Cut okra into small pieces. My mom use to spread the cut okra in a newspaper to remove the stickiness in okra. u can leave it for 10 mts.
Heat a non-stick pan, add chopped okra and fry on medium heat. Don't add oil. Stir occasionally, fry till the stickiness in the vegetable reduces.... It might take upto 20 mts. Add 1 tsp oil and fry for few minutes. Add rechilli powder and salt. Fry for another 10 mts. Add remaining oil. Fry for 15 mts in slow heat. Remove from heat!!!

Serve hot with Rasam and Rice



Lovely recipe, u know what i dont get Lady's finger in super markets in altanta!!! It rarely appears in indian store. I will try once it is available!!!
