This Vendaikkai Puzhi Pachadi is primarily made with Vendaikkai (okra) and Puzhi (tamarind). This pairs well with dal rice, curd rice and even with chapatis.

Ingredients

  • Okra (Vendakkai) – 20 to 25

  • Tamarind – Lemon size

  • Green Chillies – 8

  • Red Chillies – 4

  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 teaspoon

  • Asafoetida Powder – 1/4 teaspoon

  • Oil – 1 tablespoon

  • Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon

  • Curry Leaves – few

  • Salt – 1 teaspoon or as per taste

  • Jaggery or sugar – 1 teaspoon

Directions

  • Wash, wipe, and cut both the tips from the okra. Chop it into thin round slices, and slit the green chillies lengthwise.
  • Soak the tamarind in water and extract the juice, adding sufficient water to make two cups of tamarind water.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan, and when hot, add the mustard.
  • When the mustard starts popping, add the asafoetida, red chillies (broken into two), green chillies, and curry leaves.
  • Fry for a second, then add the chopped okra pieces. Set the flame to medium and stir fry until the okra changes color and becomes light brown.
  • Add the tamarind water, along with the turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and allow to boil.
  • Add jaggery and cook until the mixture becomes a thick gravy.
  • This goes well with dal rice, curd rice, and even chapatis.
