Vendakkai Sukka/Okra Sukka

I never stopped to pick fresh okras from Indian groceries as we guys love it in anything as anything...This saturday i simply prepared those okras as this delicious sukka, okra sukka are prepared usually with idli podi instead of usual chilly powder or either with a combination of chilly powder and coriander powder, for a change i tried making a spice powder using coriander powder, mustard seeds,poppyseeds,dry red chillies and dessicated coconut..This sukka tastes fabulous when served along with curd rice..Its such a quick curry,this sukka gets ready in less than 15minutes and whoever says 'no' to this sticky veggies will defnitely love this delicious sukka...Sending to my own event CWS-Mustard Seeds guest hosted by Kiran.

1tsp Ginger garlic paste
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)

1/2tsp Cumin seeds

To roast & grind:
1tbsp Coriander seeds
1tsp Mustard seeds
