Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
10th of September! I am here again, presenting you my recipe for POTLUCK PARTY CYBER STYLE which is started by Jagruti and this month  http://nivedhanams.blogspot.in/ is hosting the event. 

OKRA or LADY FINGER or BHINDI again! Yes! last time I brought Okra Chutney which was liked by many of you all. This time also I am with Okra dish. I had planned something else for the party but when I tasted this curry I thought this special curry should go to our Party first.
Without much introduction lets go to the ingredients directly. 

Okra or  lady finger - 10 to12 big
Oil - 1 tbsp to fry 
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Kokum - 1tbsp soaked in warm water for 1/2 an hour(i tbsp is enough as kokum is strong)
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 2 tsp or as per the taste
Haldi - 1/4 tsp
Jaggery - 1 tbsp
Oil - tsp 
To make curry powder
Dry roast
Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Chana dal - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Pepper - 1 tsp
Green chilly - 1, chopped
Curry leaves - few
Fresh coconut - 2 tbsp, grated
Ginger - 1/4"

Wash and pat dry the bhindi , cut into 1" pieces. 
Fry in a pan with 1 tbsp oil till light brown adding a dash of lime juice.
Dry roast all the ingredients in a pan and when cold, grind into a coarse powder. Add the kokum paste and grind into fine paste.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Add the ready paste and fry till it leaves the sides. Add  salt, jaggery, salt and haldi. Mix well and cook for few minutes. 
Add 1 cup of water and cook for a minute. Check the taste and consistency of the curry. Adjust it if necessary. 
Add fried Okra. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
Remove from the fire. Wait for some time(at least half an hour) before serving so that okra gets the curry taste in it. Make it hot before serving.
Serve with Chapati or hot rice and ghee and Paapad. 
Sending it to the event 

Keep Smiling,

I loved the fact that you added homemade curry powder...I usually make okra curry with normal tamarind but with kokum sounds great

Freda Dias said...

Looks delicious, I love okra in curries :)

Masala Chilli said...

Perfect curry for steamed rice and the kokum provides the perfect tang. Kokum during summers is excellent for the body. Great share for the Potluck theme.

I too always love the okra in a tangy version, even my hubby too. But in tamaring paste flavor, will surely try in kokum flavor

Mayuri Patel said...

A different curry base to make okra with. I've not tried hokum curry but would love to.
