Put chopped okra and onion in a vessel. Add salt, chilly powder, cumin seeds, broken cashew nuts, mango powder, vinegar and mix them well. Keep them aside for about 5 mins.
Add rice flour, bengal gram flour and mix them well by adding very little amount of water. (Don't make the batter too thin.)
Keep oil in a thick bottomed vessel and heat it. Take little amount of prepared batter and put it in oil. Fry them in oil until they turn golden in color.
Serve hot along with tomato ketchup or any chutney. I tried this recipe from vahrehvah. Thanks Sanjay for this recipe.
