Okra is my all favorite. With okra we can make sambar, pachadi, poriyal, curry, kurma and so many things. Okra will be very tasty in all dishes. I tried this recipe with rasam powder. It will be too spicy.
Okra - 10-12
onion - 1 medium
Dry red chilli paste- 1 tsp ( soak chillies in warm water and grind it in blender with lime juice)
Rasam powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Make a light slit in okra in all sides. Mix the dry red chilli paste and salt in a small bowl and dip the okra in that paste and shallow fry okra till its soft. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan add onion, ginger-garlic paste and fry till onions turn brown color.
Then add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala, rasam powder, mix it well and keep it in low flame for 5-10 min.
Then add okra,salt and little water and cook in low flame till the raw smell of okra goes off.
Finally add black pepper powder and mix it well.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve with chapati or rice.
