Bendekayi(Okra / Ladis Finger) Majjige Huli

5 - 6 Ladies Fingers / Okra / Bendekayi
1 - 1.5 cup grated Coconut
2 - 3 Green Chillies
1/2 - 3/4 cup Buttermilk / Yogurt /Curd
Pinch of Turmeric powder
Pinch of Chilly powder
1/4 tsp Tamarind Juice
Salt to taste
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 - 2 broken Red Chilly pieces
1 tsp Oil

Chop okra into medium sized pieces(3/4 inch sized), cut one green chilly into two pieces and put them in a thick bottomed vessel/pan. Fry them for about 4-5 mins in medium flame to get rid of the stickiness of ladies finger.

Add fried ladies fingers, turmeric powder, tamarind juice, salt, chilly powder, water in a vessel and cook them well. Grind grated coconut and one green chilly into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut use hot water while grinding.) Add this ground coconut to a vessel containing cooked ladies fingers and mix them well. Add buttermilk to the same vessel and mix them well and bring it to boil. (If it is yogurt/curd put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to majjige huli.)
Add mustard seeds, red chilly and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering add it to majjige huli. It goes well with rice.

I was initially sceptical of making this since it didn't have chana dal that I'm used to. But the pic looked so good that I wanted to try it. Turned out delicious! Thank you for the recipe. I will make this often now.

No, you should keep stirring it smoothly while boiling. Without stirring if you boil, the Majjige Huli will have the curdy texture.
