Okra (Bendakaya) Stir Fry

Okra (Bendakaya/Lady fingers) - 1 cup (cut into small pieces)
Curry leaves - 5
Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Turmeric - 1/4 tbsp
Corn flour - 1 tbsp


  • In a pan, add 2 tbsp oil and when it is hot, add curry leaves and fry till they are crisp
  • Add Okra pieces, salt and turmeric to the pan and fry the okra pieces till they are fried well which takes around 10min
  • Add red chilli powder and stir well and fry for 2 more min
  • Just before you switch off the heat, sprinkle fry with corn flour and stir well and switch off the heat
  • Corn flour adds nice flavor to the fry and makes it just enough crispy for you to enjoy!

Goes well with Roti and Rice!
