Okra Stir Fry | Bendekai Palya | Ladies' Finger Fry | Bhendi Fry

Here is a simple stir fry recipe from my kitchen. It can be prepared quickly using the common ingredients in the pantry. We
Many people dislike okra because of its slime. But you won't feel it when its cooked with proper care. Okra is a good source of fibre which is needed for our body.
Try this Okra Stir Fry and I hope you like it!


Preparation time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2
Difficulty level: Medium

Ingredients:

  • Medium size Okra - 15 nos
  • Amchur powder - 3/4 tsp or for taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh grated coconut - 2 to 3 tbsp
  • For seasoning: 
         Oil - 2 tbsp,
         Dry red chilli - half piece,
         Urid dal - 1 tsp,
         Mustard seeds - 1 tsp,
        Asafoetida / Hing - a pinch,
        Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp,
        Curry leaves - 7 or 8 leaves,
        Green chilli - 1 (adjust according to spiciness)

Method:

  • Wash the Okra in water and drain the water using a cotton cloth or paper towel. Slice them into very thin rounds.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan. Add dry red chilli, urid dal followed by mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds splutter, add pinch of hing, turmeric powder, slit green chilli and curry leaves. Saute them for a minute. 
  • Add the Okra slices to the seasoning and mix it once. Add salt and Amchur powder for taste. 
  • Cook the mixture without putting the lid and give it a stir regularly to avoid burning. It won't take much time to cook since we have sliced the Okra very thinly. 
  • Once the mixture is almost cooked, add the fresh grated coconut and cook it till done. 
  • Serve this delicious Stir Fry / Palya along with rice or chapathi. 



Tips:

  • This Stir Fry tastes really good when Okra is slices into very thin roundels. 
  • Do not over mix the stir fry while cooking, otherwise it becomes mushy. 
  • Adding onion will give a different taste for this recipe. Chopped onion can be added along with grated coconut.
