Lady'sFinger fry


Lady's Finger - 1/2 kg or 1 pound - Cut it horizontally, approx 0.5 mm thickness
Onion - 1(big) - chopped
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Grated coconut - 1 tsp(optional)
Oil - 3 tsp
salt - 1/4 tsp or as per need


1. Heat oil in a pan, splutter cumin seeds, add onion and fry until golden brown.
2. Add, tumeric powder, chilli powder, salt to onion and mix well
3. Add chopped lady's finger now and fry.
4. Do not stir often, it may break. When its cooked, add coconut(optional) and spread pepper powder and mix well and let it for 1-2 mins.


Since you add pepper powder add less amount of chilli powder to this. If needed along with onion you can also add garlic(finely chopped). When i tried this dish for the first time, it smashed like anything. So do not stir this often.
