Today is one of those days, when I am feeling very lazy to spend too much time in kitchen making tedious curries or side dishes. Seeing the okra, I wanted to make something very simple without any masala, just wanted to put the ready powders which are available.
So, I came up with this and tried it out.. It really gave the crunch and also the spice for this cold weather. You can just eat it as a snack or as a side dish..
ಬೆಂಡೆಕಾಯಿ /Bindi / Okra - 1 Lb(25- 30 Pieces)
ಕಾರದ ಪುಡಿ / Chili Powder - 1 Tb spoon
ಧನಿಯ ಪುಡಿ / Coriander Powder - 1.5 tsp
ಜೀರಿಗೆ ಪುಡಿ /Jeera Powder - 1 tsp
ಅರಿಶಿನ ಪುಡಿ /Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
ಉಪ್ಪು / Salt - 1 tsp
ಎಣ್ಣೆ / Oil - 1 Tb spoon
- Cut Bindi and mix all the above powders along with salt as shown below.
- Cover it and set it aside for half an hour.
- In a non stick pan, add oil, then add bindi and fry till it is done.
- Serve hot with any main dish.
PS: If you want it crunchy, just fry without adding water. If you want it soft, you can add little water.
