Okra (Ladies Finger) with Yoghurt

Initial preparations:

  • Clean and cut the okra into thin slices, preferably in round shape.
  • Keep aside the yogurt in a bowl.


  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. Add mustard seeds and when they splutter, add curry leaves and dried chilly pieces (optional).
  3. Add okra pieces  with a little water and salt, and allow it to cook (shallow fry).
  4. Add turmeric powder and stir well.
  5. Add this fry into yogurt.
  6. Mix well before serving.

Add 2-3 thin slices of small onions to the oil before frying Okra makes it taste special.
Add a pinch of chilly powder if you want to make it a bit hot.
If we fry okra in the oil , without water till brown color, it becomes more tastier, but not healthier. 🙂
