Okra sauteed with Garlic is a super quick recipe that takes very little time to dish out. I went on an adventurous trip and so decided - why not add some puffed rice. The end result was very delicious.
I finished it off with lots of chopped coriander leaves and a garnish of coarsely ground roasted peanuts. Enjoy this stir fry as a side dish with either dal-chawal (rice-lentil combo) or with chapattis.
- 300 gms. okra, chopped into 1/2" thickness
- 2-3 tbsp. oil
- 1 tsp. cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp. garlic, grated
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
- 1/4 tsp. asafoetida (hing)
- 1 tsp. roasted cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp. amchur powder
- 2-3 tbsp. roasted peanuts, ground coarsely
- 1 tsp. red chili flakes
- 1/2 cup puffed rice
- 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds. After it stops spluttering, add the chopped okra and saute for a minute on low flame.
Now add salt, turmeric powder, asafoetida and garlic. Continue to fry for 2 minutes. Add amchur powder, cumin powder and chili flakes and fry till soft.
Add the puffed rice and mix well. Fry till it is slightly crisp, before adding the coriander leaves.
Mix well and switch off the flame. Garnish with ground peanuts and serve as a side dish with either rice or chapattis.
