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

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