Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Coriander powder - 3 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds - 3-4

Salt to taste

Cut okra into big pieces and keep aside.
Cut small onion into two halves or chop the medium onion very finely.
Add little oil and fry okra till it become soft remove from heat and keep aside.
In the same pan add little oil add onion and fry the onions till golden brown.
Now add fenugreek seeds and fry for 1 min.
Get thick tamarind by adding less amount of water to tamarind.
To this add salt, chilli powder, coriander powder and mix well.
