Okra Pepper Stir-fry / Vendaikai Milagu Varuval

Okra Pepper Stir-fry / Vendaikai Milagu Varuval

Bhindi Subzi:Ingredients:

Okra/lady’s finger 15-20 sliced lengthwise
Turmeric 1 pinch
Urad dal 1 spoon
Garlic 5 minced
Pepper powder 1-2 teaspoons
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Sesame oil few spoons
Curry leaves few.


Take a very wide, heavy bottomed skillet. Yeah, bit unusually!…for a small portion of vegetables, an extra large wok! This will ensure uniform heat to the pan…and we can bring forth ‘not so mushy, sticky okras’ as an end result. Isnt that exciting!

Well, now grease your pan. Add the mustard seeds and wait till it sputters. Then add the urid dal and wait till it get roasted to reddish color.

Add garlic and curry leaves. Once the raw odor of the garlic is gone, add the okras, salt and turmeric. Cover and cook for 2-4 minutes.

Then, remove the lid and add pepper powder and stir-fry over high heat for 5-7 minutes. Once the oil separates and okras turn crispy, its done.

Serve as a side dish …I don’t mind if you eat it right away:)
