Vendakkai thayir pachaddi... Ladies finger raita

This is one simple pachadi / raita that I have loved from when I was a kid. Me and  my Dad love it a lot. Its simple to make and yet yummy till the last spoon. Well.... you got to try this and enjoy

Serves... 2 ppl
Serve option... Room tempertaure

This is what u'll need....

Ladies finger/Okra - 10-12 nos
Pearl onions - 10 nos
Red chillies - 1 or 2
Curd - 1 cup
Mustard seeds 
Oil - 1 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a shallow fry pan. When the oil is hot enough add mustard seeds
  • Add dry red chillies and sliced pearl onions
  • Saute onions for about a minute
  • Chop okra and add it to the pan
  • Fry this all on medium heat until okra is not sticky
  • Sprinkle salt and give it a final stir
  • Transfer fried okra into a bowl
  • Spoon in curd just before serving and give it a good stir
  • Serve fresh and enjoy. This tastes good when served fresh unlike other raitas that taste better when rested for a while
