Okra/ Bhendi Chutney





Okra/Bhendi chutney is made with the ends of the Okra.(Which we usually throw away).
The ends of Okra have major nutrients and Fibers in them.Thanks to my cousin who shared this tasty recipe.

Ingredients:

Okra (ends)-2 cups
Urad dal/Black gram- 1 tbsp
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Tamarind juice- 1 tbsp
Coriander/Cilantro(cut)-1 tbsp
Sugar/Jaggery- 1/2 tsp
Coconut(grated)-2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

For Seasoning:

Oil- 1tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Urad dal-1/4 tsp
Hing- a pinch
Curry leaves-2-3
Red chilli-1-2

Method:

Wash the ends thoroughly and pat dry them with paper towel to get rid of the moisture.Deep fry the ends of the Okra in the oil until brown.Dry roast the urad dal.Now add to the Okra(it has to cool)urad dal roasted,coconut,red chilli powder,Tamarind juice,sugar,cilantro and salt.Grind all these ingredients in a mixie adding very little water.Grind it coarsely.Add Seasoning and serve with hot rice and ghee.

P.S. You can also use green chillies instead of Red Chilli powder.
