Okra and Coconut

      Have you ever tried this combination. I was also a little doubtful about it. I tried it once and turned out to be very good. The best part is this even tastes best with both rice and chapathi.


Ladies finger (chopped) - 1 bowl
Oil - 4 tsp
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste


Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds to it. Once they splutter, add channa and urad dal. Also add turmeric.

Add the chopped ladies finger to it. Shallow fry them till they are cooked. You can sprinkle little water to it to avoid the okra from becoming very crisp. 

Once they are cooked, add coconut to it and mix well. Add enough salt and mix. Serve hot with rice or chapathi..

Enjoy Cooking.. :)
