Okra peanut fry



Ingredients:

Tender Okra/Lady's finger - 200 gms
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Salt to taste

For peanut powder
Peanuts - 2 heaped tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Jeera / cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Dry red chillies - 3 or 4

Note: This recipe can be made with brinjal or tindora/kovakka instead of okra. Add the peanut spice powder after the veggie is cooked.

Preparation:

1. Dry roast the peanuts till the skin starts turning black here and there. Let it cool and then remove the skin and keep aside.
2. Heat 1 tsp of oil and add jeera, urad dal and dry chillies. Roast till urad dal starts turning brown. Coarsely pound this along with peanuts using a spice grinder/mixer.
3. Remove the ends of the okra and cut into small pieces. Heat a tbsp of oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add okra pieces and fry well till the stickiness goes off. Add the peanut spice powder and enough salt and fry well for a few minutes.

Serve as side dish with rice or roti.
