Masala Okra dry curry

I made this curry last week. It was so boring to make the regular okra curry every time. So thought of giving it some change and tried this dry curry using some masala ingredients.

  1. Okra - 2 cups (chopped in an inch size)
  2. Onion - medium sized 2
  3. Tomato - Medium sized 2
  4. salt to taste
  5. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  6. Oil - 3 to 4 tsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  8. Cumin seeds -1/2 tsp
To Roast & Grind:-
  1. Coriander seeds - 1 tbsp
  2. Channa dhall - 2 tsp
  3. Urad dhall - 1 tsp
  4. Red chillies - 3  nos (acc to taste)
  5. Coconut - 1 tsp
  6. White Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
  7. Ajwain seeds - 1/2 tsp
  8. Cumin seeds = 1/2 tsp
  9. Peanuts -  2tbsp
Pre heat a pan with a teaspoon of oil, splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fry onion till it becomes transparent. Add chopped tomato and saute for few minutes. Now add the chopped okra to it, sprinkle required amount of water, add turmeric powder, mix well and let it cook for 5 to 7 minutes. In the mean time, take a pan, pre heat a drop of oil, fry the given ingredients in "To Roast & Grind" and grind it into a fine powder. Keep it aside. When the vegetables are nicely cooked, add the required amount of masala powder and required amount of salt. Mix it well and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Add the remaining oil in between. It tastes really good with rice and I am sure it will taste good with rotis too.
