2lbs Okra , Manju
salt to taste
chilly powder/karam (adjust as you per your taste) Thiragamatha/thadka/popu
1/2 tbsp menapapu/urad dal
1/2 tsp Avalu/mustard seeds
6 karivepaku/curry leaves
Wash and wipe okra with paper towel or cloth
Cut them into small pices
Heat oil in a pan, add all sesonings and curry leaves
Add okra pieces, then add curd and cover them. Adding curd removes the stickiness from okra.
Cook them on low flame
Do not stir them very frequently as okra might become paste
When half cooked add salt and cook until soft.
Add chilly powder and stir.
Serve it with rice or roti.
My mom used to say that eating Okra will sharpen your brain and also improves math skills.
