Okra Kadhi

Okra Kadhi, fresh okras cooked with spices and yogurt which ressembles quite like our Tamilian's more kuzhambu but will slight changes, my mom used to prepare a spice paste prepared with rice, coconut,red dry chillies, channadal, toor dal,dhania and fenugreek seeds for making out more kuzhambu..but i prepared this okra kadhi with fenugreek leaves, sour curd and a spice paste prepared with channadal,coconut,cumin seeds,green chillies and ginger which is quite an easy version to enjoy the same delectable more kuzhambu..This okra kadhi hardly needs few minutes and this tastes fantastic with hot steaming rice and spicy potato roast..



2cups Sour yogurt
15nos Okra (cut lengthwise)
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tbsp Methi leaves (dry)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Oil
5nos Curry leaves
1tsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

To Grind:
1tbsp Channadal
1/2cup Grated coconut
3nos Green chillies
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Ginger pieces

Soak the channadal for few minutes in hot water, grind the soaked channadal with all the ingredients give in the list 'To grind' with enough water a fine paste..Whisk the sour yogurt with enough salt and mix the spice paste to the whisked yogurt and keep aside...Heat enough oil and let splutters mustard seeds,add the asafoetida powder and curry leaves and fry until the curry leaves turn crispy, now add the okra pieces,dry methi leaves and turmeric powder and cook the veggies until it turns tender..add the already prepared yogurt and cook in low flame for 10minutes till the kadhi starts boiling...garnish with coriander leaves...

Enjoy with rice!!
