Vendaikai Poriyal

This is very quick and simple stir fry and one of my fav too. The equal ratio of adding onions to the veggies tastes more fun and yummy. It goes well with all type of rice.


Ingredients:
Vendaikai / Ladies finger – 200 gm
Onion - 2no
Turmeric powder - 1/4tsp
Chilli powder – 2tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 3tsp

Method:
  • Wash and clean the vendaikai and dry in a tissue paper. Now chop them into roundels as shown below.


  • Heat oil in a pan and season with musturad seeds and add chopped vendaikai and saute well till it turns golden color and the raw smell leaves.
  • Now add chopped onions and add turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt and fry for couple of minutes and keep cover and cook for few more minutes till onion turns transparent and soft.
  • Now its ready to serve with hot rice!!

Note:
  • Try using small onions, instead of big onions.
  • At the finishing stage add garam masala powder for more flavor.
