A side dish for Kerala Sadya
Wash and pat dry Lady's Finger /Okra /Vendakka. Cut the top end of each one and slice into uniformly round pieces.
In a bowl mix turmeric, red chilly powder and salt with a teaspoon of water and make a paste of it.
Add the cut lady's finger /okra /vendakka pieces into the bowl and mix well with a spoon, so that the masala gets well coated.
Heat a non-stick frying pan/ kadai, with oil. Fry the masala coated okra/vendakka on a medium flame.(Do not burn it).
When the okra/vendakka is fried, lower the flame and add jeera/cumin seeds. Off the flame and add asafoetida to it. Mix well. Keep aside to cool.
