Okra kai

Okra reminds me of my grandma who prepares it so tasty.Its almost 15 years but i still remember the taste.Okra has always been my favorite.I used to be very chose when it comes to eating vegetables.But my hubby has every thing vegetarian.So now i eat almost everything thatz vegetarian.

Many dont like okra becoz it gets sticky.I learnt how to make it with out becoming sticky from my chitti.

Here goes my okra recipe
Okra cup 1 cup
onion 1
chilli powder 1tsp
turmeric powder 1/4tsp
salt to taste
oil 2-3 tsp
mustard seeds 1/4tsp

Wash & cut okra to small pieces as u cannot wash it when u cut it.In a kadai add oil & splutter mustard seeds.When they pop add onions & saute.Now add okra.Add chilli powder,turmeric powder & salt.Mix well.Cover & cook in slow flame.Remove the lid & check if okra is cooked.

When preparing okra never add even a tsp of water.It is not necessary.Also if u want to retain the color of any green vegetables u cook donot cover it again once u open to check if the veggie is cooked.This way u can retain the color.So when u decide to open the lid make u own judgement when to open it & check.
