Okra is one of vegetables I frequently use. It is also known as ladies finger or more commonly by the name of bhendi in India. This vegetable is  blended with tomatoes and onions, can be easily prepared  without much work. Being a dry sabzi, it is ideal for the lunch box with chapati.

 The ingredients that you need are :

  • okra or ladies finger 1/2 kg
  • tomatoes 3
  • onions 2
  • oil 1tbsp
  •  chilli powder 2 tsp
  • amchur powder 1/4 tsp
  •  garam masala powder 1/2 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • cumin 1/2 tsp

Method :

Wash and pat dry the okra. Cut into one inch long pieces.

Dice the tomatoes and onions and keep aside.

Take some oil in a wok and shallow fry the ladies finger. Let the stickiness subside.

Take oil in another pan and add the cumin. Then, add the onion and saute for sometime. Add tomatoes and let cook. Add the amchur powder, garam masala powder, chilli powder and salt. Mix well, add the okra pieces to it and simmer for five minutes. Serve with chapati or nan.
