Today I am sharing the recipe of Vendakka Mezhkkupuratti, which is very easy to prepare and goes very well with rice. Ladies finger is known as Okra in US.
Servings ~ 2 Adults
Chopped Ladies Finger / Okra / Vendakka ~ 2 1/2 cups ( Medium size pieces)
Green chillies ~ 3-4 Nos (Split length-wise)
Chopped Onions ~ 1/2 cup
Red chilly powder ~ 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder ~ 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder ~ 1/4 tsp
- First wash the ladies finger nicely and cut off both the ends and then chop it to medium size pieces.
- Then heat 11/2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it crackles, add onions and green chillies and saute till soft.
- Then lower the flame and add red chilly powder, pepper powder and turmeric powder.After that add chopped ladies finger/ vendakka and salt. Then mix it nicely.
- Cook covered for about 10-15 minutes in a low flame. Do stir in between. (Note: If its becoming very sticky, then add 1/2 tsp of oil and mix nicely.)
Enjoy with Rice.
