I wondered what is Okra before few years. Okra is known as Lady's finger outside United States. It is called as Vendakka in Tamil and Malayalam. Hope most of you know the pain of frying the Okra in oil. I like to taste it but not to cook. It requires us to make frequent supervision and frying. We cannot move here and there for sometime. So, I tried Okra Stew/Vendakka Pachadi last week. It came out very well. Of course, this is one of my mom's best recipes.
