Ladyfinger or Okra Sagllein Recipe – 2

This Okra Sagllein is a take off on the Masala that is normally used to make Pomfret Ghashi. A common Masala is ground and either vegetables of choice or fish added to it. This preparation is unseasoned, but is drizzled with a generous amount of coconut oil.

Ingredients :

  • 100 gms Okra
  • 1 potato
  • 3 onions
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 green chilly
  • 1/2 coconut grated
  • 12 roasted dry red chillies
  • 1 heaped tsp tamarind paste
  • Salt
  • 3 tbsps coconut oil

Method :

Deskin the potato, wash and slice it thinly. Slice the onions. Snip off the ends of the Okra and chop them into one inch size pieces. Grate the ginger. Slit the green chilly. Boil the onion, potato, salt and ginger in two glasses of water. Grind the grated coconut, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Tip it into the cooked onion and potato mixture. Add water to adjust the consistency of the gravy. It should neither be too thick nor runny. Add the Okra, slit green chilly and boil well. Switch off. Drizzle with coconut oil. Mix thoroughly. Keep aside for half an hour for the flavours to infuse before serving.
