One of my family favourite veggies are okras, its might sounds somewat particular coz most of the kids wont love this sticky veggies, even my younger son love this okras as any form and he loves it...For our today's lunch i prepared this delicious okra curry with a special spice powder instead of using sambhar powder as i dont want to make the usual okra curry, ofcourse i prepared myself an interesting spice powder using coriander seeds, peppercorns,fennel seeds, poppyseeds,dry red chillies,channadal and dessicated coconut..This curry tastes super delicious when served along with hot piping rasam or with curd rice.We enjoyed this delicious vendakka poriyal for our lunch with curd rice,both together turned out our lunch simply awesome..Sending this delicious curry to CWS-Coriander Seeds guest hosted by Aruna,event by me..
