Vendakka Thoran (Okra / Lady's Finger Stir-Fry with Coconut)


My mom never used to make vendakka thoran at home and neither do I. I found this recipe on Bharathy's blog Spicy Chilly. I fried it a little bit more to avoid the sliminess as we bite into the okra pieces. Loved it!

MIL's Vendakka Thoran


This is my MIL's version of okra thoran. She puts coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric and garam masala while okra is cooking. Towards the end, grated coconut is added like in usual thorans.
