VENDAKKAI PULI PACHADI RECIPE| OKRA IN TAMARIND SAUCE

Vendakkai puli pachadi recipe,i am trying out for the first time. When a reader asked for this recipe, i didn’t have much idea about how to make vendakkai puli pachadi. Though i have tasted in a friend’s place very long back, i couldn’t recollect the recipe. But thank god finally when i was casually talking to a friend about this recipe she gave me the idea and finally made it. This goes well with Arisi upma, Pidi Kozhukattai and you can have this with rice too.

Note:

  1. I used the tamarind paste. You can soak a small gooseberry sized tamarind in hot water and extract juice with 1 cup of water.
  2. Do not change the color of okra while cooking.

  14. Hi Jeyashri, recipe looks great, thanks for posting. In fact one request i had was if you could continue to post a lot more Tam-Brahm recipes, especiallythe lesser known ones. I believe this is the USP of this blog and I am sure that like me, for a lot of others, your blog is fast becoming a definitive source for authentic Tam-Brahm recipes. So would request you to post more such recipes in this genre in the days to come. Great work on the blog, hoping to see this blog scale greater heights in the future.
