Yummy Okra Masala

The world's most beautiful women, Cleopatra of Egypt loved Okra ... it was one of her secrets for her youthfullness. Okra has many health benefits too. But okra is such a delicious vegetable that we dont need to know any reason to eat it : ). I am sure everybody will agree with me !!

Ingredients:
  • 20 to 25 small okra(bhindi)
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatos
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp garlic ginger paste
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp dry fenugreek leaves
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure

Wash the okra ,pat it in paper towel n cut both side n keep it aside

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan ,add onion ,ginger garlic paste and fry till onion become golder brown

Add chopped tomatos and fry till tomato become soft

Add all the above mentioned powders along with salt n stir for 1 more min

Switch off the stove n shift the prepared masala to a plate ,let it cool

Once it is cooled ,put the whole thing in the blender n make a smooth paste with little water n keep aside

In the same pan ,heat one more tbsp oil n fry the okras till the stickiness of the okra dissapear

Tip: Can add 1 tsp lemon juice to the okra ,so the stickiness will dissapear fast.

Add the blended paste to the okra in the pan n stir it nicely so that the masala completely coats the okra .

Add dry fenugreek leaves n mix well

Cook the okra till it become soft .

Serve hot with rotis or rice
