Vendakai Kuzhambu/Ladiesfinger Gravy

          Last weekend was breaking my head regarding what to prepare for the lunch.That time only my friend Gayathri told me about this recipe and since i had the ladies finger in my pantry i immediately made it and  turned really well.My hubby loved it a lot and told me at least 20 times from afternoon to evening that it was really tasty.So thank you Gayathri for sharing this recipe with me.Since it was really tasty was planning to share the recipe with you guys.

Ingredients :

Ladies finger 15 nos(app)
Onion 1 small sized
Tamarind pulp
1 tbsp
Red chillie powder 1/2tsp+1/8tsp
Dhania powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp
Salt Req
Oil Req(i used 1 1/2 tbsp)

To Grind :

Shallots 10-12 nos
Tomato 1 medium sized
Chopped coconut 2 tbsp

Method :

1.   In a wok add little oil(i used 1/2 tbsp) and saute shallots for few min's.Then add the chopped tomato and fry till the tomato turns mushy.

2.   Now finally add the chopped coconut and saute for few min's.Now put off the fire and set aside to bring it to the room temperature,then grind in the blender.

3.   Now again in the same wok pour oil and add the chopped onions and fry till the onions becomes transparent.

4.   Then comes the ladies finger.Add the chopped ladies finger to your desired shape, to the onion in the wok and then fry till the ladies finger is nicely coated with the oil.

5.   Once the ladies finger is well coated in oil add the tamarind pulp and boil for few sec's.

6.    Its time to add all the dry powders and mix once.

7.   Now add the ground masala and fry for 2-3 mins.

8.   Add required water and salt.Allow the ladies finger to get cooked.

9.    Once the ladies finger is cooked and the water content in the gravy has reduced in quantity put off the fire and the gravy is ready to serve.

I served it with potato chips.

Notes :

1.   Adjust the tamarind paste according to the tangy taste of tomato.

2.   If required can add more red chillies powder for the gravy to become too spicy.
