I was never an Okra lover, but as my hubby loves all preparations of Okra / Vedakka, I started including it in my menu. This is a simple everyday recipe (nothing of rocket science ;)) for preparing Vendakka thoran (stir fry) with grated coconut. Its my MIL’s recipe. She prepares it well and quickly in not more than 15- 20 minutes.

Vendakka thoran preparation
Wash the Vendakka / Okra / Bhindi well in running water.
Trim the edges of each of them and cut them in to about half a cm wide rounds.
Mix the grated coconut, shallots, green chillies to a coarse form in a mixer.
In a pan / Kadai heat the coconut oil.
When it becomes hot, splutter the mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds starts crackling, add the curry leaves and okra.
Add the ground paste (#3) to it.
Saute it well and cover with a lid. Saute it in between.
Keep it in medium flame and stir it till it turns crispy.
