Okra Buttermilk Curry

This is a mild curry that’s great with rice and/or rotis.

Okra Buttermilk Curry

200 g Okra
500 g Yogurt
1/2 tsp Turmeric
50 ml Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
4 Red Chillies
2 sprigs Curry Leaves
2 Onions, sliced
2 Green Chillies, cut lengthwise
Salt, to taste
1 tbsp Coconut Oil

Cut the okra into 1.5 cm long pieces. Whip curd with turmeric and keep aside.

Heat oil and season with mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, red chillies and curry leaves. When the mustard seeds pop, add the onions and green chillies. Saute well.

Add the okra and fry well. Finally add the whipped yogurt, salt to taste and simmer on low heat.

    I like this idea… like a cross between vendakkai mor kuzhambu and dahi bhindi.



    I just finished a bag of okra… will save this recipe for the next one! Have to make your tomato mor kuzhambu again soon!

    Found your blog by accident – looking up Moth lentils on Google – but will be checking in regularly from now on!
    Some of them will make an old man(me) very happy as you can't always get good Indian food in Sherwood Forest.
    Thanks Arundathi
