Vendaikka/Okra Thayir Pacchadi

Vendaikka thayir pacchadi or make it fancy by calling Fried okra in yogurt sauce :)

What you need

Vendaikka/okra - 2 cups ( cut )
Green chillies - 3-4 ( chopped fine)
Curry leaves - a few
Yogurt - 3 tbsp ( beaten well with just enough water)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/tsp
Salt - as needed

How you will make it

In a heavy bottomed pan heat oil and splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves.Now add cut okra pieces ,salt, green chillies and saute on medium high flame until they are cooked (and all that sticky-ness is gone).This pacchadi tastes little better when okra is little crunchy not completely fried(Saute until the green color is retained).Switch off the heat and let the mixture cool. In a bowl beat yogurt with just enough water /salt and pour this into the okra mixture.Mix slightly and serve it.We enjoyed this with hot/spicy Sambar and Rice.
