Okra fry with peanut | Vendakkai Poriyal

Okra fry with peanuts,an easy and tasty stir fry that you can prepare within 15 mins. Normally i prepare this simple vendakkai fry along with sambar for our lunch.But during our last month blogging marathon, i got this wonderful idea of adding peanuts into okra from fellow bloggers.By reading that recipe itself, i knew i'm gonna make this soon. Today i have prepared this along with sambar and it tastes so delicious. The peanuts give nice crunchiness to the slimy okra and together it taste so yum on each mouthful.

  • Add more or less of peanuts & coconut as per your liking.
  • Instead of sambar powder, you can use red chili and coriander powder.

  • You can also powder the peanut and use it.
