Vendakkai Thayir pachadi recipe | ladies finger raita, a delicious South Indian raita recipe,pairs well with any variety rice. I have very memories of tasting this from my Mom's kitchen. After marriage i have never attempted this on my own. Though it is a simple recipe somehow i never made it. After moving to Singapore, i have tried it once and Suresh loved it very much. Those days i don't own a blog but even after starting Jeyashri's kitchen, in these 9 years i haven't posted the vendakkai thayir pachadi recipe. Though i make it at home, never clicked the pictures. But i have posted the pictures in my lunch plate on Instagram. After getting requests from few people on that posts, i finally made it last week and clicked the step by step pictures too. Read the post to know about the small tips i have given in between the posts. Also check out my

Vendakkai Thayir pachadi recipe | ladies finger raita, a delicious South Indian raita recipe,pairs well with any variety rice.
    Ladies Finger | Okra | Vendakkai  15
    Yogurt | Curd   1 cup
     Oil   2-3 tblsp
     Mustard seeds  1/4 tsp
     Urad dal  1/4 tsp
     Red chili  1
     Salt  as needed


Method:

  • Wash and pat dry the ladies finger and spread it on a clean dry cloth for 15 mins to half an hour.
  • This will help to reduce the sliminess of the ladies finger while cooking. 
  • Slice the ladies finger into roundels. 
  • In a pan add the oil and add the sliced ladies finger.
  • Cook it in a medium low flame till the ladies finger becomes crispy brown.
  • My mom usually deep fries the ladies finger, if you want you can do so. 
  • Add little salt in the last. If you add salt in the beginning, it will ooze out water and make the ladies finger sticky.
  • In a wide bowl add the yogurt and whisk it nicely.
  • Add salt to this and mix well.
  • Allow the cooked ladies finger to cool completely. 
  • Just before serving add the cooked ladies finger to this yogurt.
  • Temper mustard seeds, red chili and urad dal in oil and add to this just before serving. 
  • Mix well and serve with bisi bela bath or vatha kuzhambu rice and even it goes well with pulao too.
