Vendakka Mezhukkuparatti~Ladies finger stir fry!

This recipe is actually long overdue..something my brother was asking for quite some time now. So, this one's for you, R! In fact, I actually made this for Onam. Normally, cabbage stir fry is the general stir fry but variety is the spice of life, don't you  agree?? :)


  • 1/4 kilo ladies finger, cut into quarter inch pieces
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red chilly powder
  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala (all spice) powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil (Any type refined oil or coconut oil)
  • Curry leaves to garnish
  • Heat oil in a frying pan. To this add the onion along with salt and saute.
  • Once onion turns translucent, add the ladies finger and fry for about 5-6 minutes or till the stickiness disappears.
  • Now add all the powders except for the garam masala.
  • Close the pan for about 5 minutes and stir in between to ensure that the ladies finger dont stick to the bottom.
  • Finally add the garam masala and garnish with curry leaves.
Easy right? In fact, you dont even need to add onions if you dont want to. So here's the pic...

Till next time, adios amigos!
