Okra Stir fry


This masala okra stir fry is inspired by the masala stuffed okra with I have been seeing around made by my fellow blogger's. But I was not patient enough to silt and fill in the stuffing and some got slitted  all the way through :(.I ended with this recipe which tasted equally nice:)


Okra- 20-25
Onion- 1 medium
Green chilly slit- 2

Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
oil
hing - a pinch

Masala
Roasted peanut powder-2tsp
Roasted Sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch




Cut okra into desired shape. Heat one tsp of oil and add in the ingredients listed under masala and lightly roast it in low flame till the raw flavor disappears and set aside. Heat another two tsp of oil and add mustard seeds. Allow to splutter and add in green chilly, curry leaves and hing. Add onions and fry till golden brown and finally add okra and stir fry for two minutes. You can close with a lid for a few seconds and then continue to stir fry. When the okra is cooked add in the masala powder and stir fry for a few more seconds till it well coated and dried up. Enjoy with rice and rasam.

Try This...
Hope you will all enjoy..

  38. I made a small change while cooking this, I just cooked the okra on a non stick pan until the sides of the okra was slightly brown and the stickiness of the Okra gets dried up. Did not have sesame seeds, but the flavour of the peanuts were good enough. My husband finished up the whole stir fry in one shot.
