Method::

[1] Heat a pan with 4 tbspn of oil, add mustard, jeera and when they splutter/pops, add chopped bendi pieces and fry well till the stickiness of the bendekaayi goes and the color changes slightly to dark green.. ಬೆಂಡೆಕಾಯಿ ಹೋಳುಗಳನ್ನು ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಒಗ್ಗರಣೆಯಲಿ ಹುರಿಯಿರಿ..

[2] Now add the ground paste(grind to smooth paste), tamarind pulp, salt, jaggery and 1 cup of water.. ತೆಂಗಿನತುರಿ, ಸಾರಿನ ಅಥವಾ ಗೊಜ್ಜಿನ ಪುಡಿ , ಒಂದರ್ಧ ಟೊಮ್ಯಾಟೋ ಅಥವಾ ಹುಣಸೆ ರಸ ಹಾಕಿ ಇರುವಿ..

[3] Stir well and mix and boil for 5-8 minutes.. Can serve with rice, any indian roti/chapathi, akki/ragi rotti etc..

ರುಬ್ಬಿದ ಮಸಾಲೆ, ಹುರಿದ ಬೆಂಡೆ ಹೋಳುಗಳು ಎರಡನ್ನೂ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಕುದಿಸಿ 8 ನಿಮಿಷದವರೆಗೆ.. ಕಡೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕೊತ್ತಂಬರಿ ಸೊಪ್ಪು ಹಾಕಿ.. ಅನ್ನ, ಚಪಾತಿ, ರೊಟ್ಟಿ ಇವುಗಳ ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬಡಿಸಿ.. ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿರುವುದು ರಾಗಿ ಚಪಾತಿ…

ಬೆಂಡೆಯ ಲೋಳೆ ಅಂಶ ಹೋಗಲು ಎಣ್ಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರಿಯಬಹುದು, ಅಥವಾ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಹುಳಿ ಮೊಸರಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರಿಯಬಹುದು…

Note ::-

The stickiness of lady’s finger goes in any of the below way..

[1] By frying well in Cooking/Refined oil…
[2] By frying in little oil and then boiling well in tamarind pulp..
[3] By frying well in 2 tbspns of thick curd… I follow any of these three, usually the second method and it works well..
