Bendekayi Majjige huli

Recently my co-sister in Bangalore mentioned about this majjige huli. I forgot to ask her the recipe. After searching on the Internet, found a couple of them here & here. I referred to them, but made the usual way how I make the majjige huli.

Ingredients: -
15 - 20 bendekayi or Okras, washed, dried & cut in to 2" pieces.
1 tbsp besan
2 cups yogurt
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch asafoetida
10-15 curry leaves
2-3 green chilies
1 tbsp coriander seeds or dhania
1" ginger piece
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Coriander leaves to garnish

Method: -
1. In a blender, add yogurt, grated coconut, ginger, dhania, green chilies, besan, salt & pulse well.
2. In a wok, add 1 tbsp of oil & heat on medium flame.
3. Add mustard seeds & when they splutter, add asafoetida, curry leaves & turmeric powder along with the Okra pieces.
4. Mix well so that each okra piece is well coated with oil. Add little salt.
5. Fry for about 5 minutes or till the threads formed on the okra pieces disappear.
6. Pour the beaten yogurt mixture into the wok.
7. Bring it to boil & then remove from flame.
8. Garnish with coriander leaves & serve hot with rice.

Slurp! I love Bendekai in anything, looks lovely!:)

How are you? Must be enjoying mom and in laws!:)

Yeah,I was busy raising 2 kids, couldn't leave them when they were younger to go and see my parents, priority you see!;D

But my parents and brother are dioing very well, always kept in touch and moved several times in Bangalore and Mysore but now settled in Bangalore. They don't really like Bangalore but work is better. My brother is tired of bad air and traffic, he wants to move to a village in Shimoga to a big house with lawn. Can't blame him, poor guy! Mysore is still so nice, happy to visit there as well.

Take care Ujju, see you in Fall. Good luck with the L and D. Son is going to look like you, I am telling you!!!!!HeHe!!!
