Bendakaya Fry / Whole Okra Fry

Okra fry is my best friend Sru's favourite. She loves to have it with hot rice and dal. I first met her in Phoenix and we quickly became friends. We used to go out shopping together but never used to buy anything other than eatables...:) And ofcourse, we went to gym together but we did more talking than excercising. We used to have never ending conversations until one of our husbands interrupt. Can you imagine, we took 75 pics just in Michaels...:)We had loads and loads of fun. Its actually Sru who gave me an idea to start a blog...thank u Sru. I love Phoenix just because of the times i spent with u dear!! Happy Wedding Anniversary!!!


Okra 1/2 lb
Red Chilli powder 1/2 tbsp
Coconut powder 1 tbsp
Garlic Cloves 3
Rice flour 2 tbsp
Besan Flour 2 tbsp

1. Remove heads and tails for the okra and make cuts with a knife. Heat oil in a wide pan, ada okra, turmeric and sprinkle some salt. Keep the stove on low flame and close the lid for 5 mins. Then gently flip over the okra and cook for an other 5 mins.

2. Grind coconut powder, red chilli powder and garlic into a fine mixture. Add this to the cooking okra. Then add besan flour and rice. Add salt if needed. Gently mix it. Serve with hot rice.
