Kerala style Okra fry/Vendakka Mezhukupuratti Recipe

This stir fry goes well with Rice as well as Roti because of the generous use of onions in this recipe. Simple but flavourful. I have tried making it without the onions too, but prefer the ones with the fragrance of lightly sautéed onions.

Ingredients :

  • 200 gms Okra/Bhindi/Vendakka
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 tbsp Kashmiri Chilly powder
  • 1/4 tsp Haldi/Turmeric powder
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 2 tbsps grated coconut

Method :

Wash and, pat dry the Okra. Snip off ends and chop fine. Slice the onions thinly. Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard and after it splutters add the onions, garlic, curry leaves and salt. Roast till the onions turn translucent. Add the chilly and turmeric powders. Sauté for a few seconds. Add the Okra and stir fry till done on a gentle flame. Garnish with coconut and serve hot.
