Fried Okra with besan

Recipe source: Nags version at Edible Garden


1 cup finely chopped okra
3 tbsp gram flour
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oil
A bit of asafoetida

Make a thick batter of gram flour, salt, turmeric, red chilli powder and asafoetida. Add the finely chopped okra to it and mix well.

Heat oil, add cumin seeds and when it splutters, add the okra batter to it. Keep stirring it at very low flame till you get granules from the cooked batter and the okra is also cooked. It does take some time and patience to get the granules, but the taste is definetely worth the efforts.

Serve with rice.
