Bhendekai Raitha/Okra Raitha

I and H are great fans of Raitha, Tambli , sasive.these just adds coolness to food and good for health. especially during summer. Having spicy and oil food always is not good ,Raitha,tambli , sasive will blance that and brings refreshment.

Today I prepared raitha from okra and here is the recipe for it

You Need To Have
25-30 okra/bendekayi
1/2 cup curd/mosaru
1/2 cup buttermilk/ majjige
1 tsp Mustard seeds/sasive
1 tsp Cumin seeds /jeerige
2 tsp oil
pinch of hing/Asofotedia
2-3 green chilies/hasi menasu
2-3 curry leaves/karibevu
salt to taste


Wash okra under running water and wipe them with dry cloth to remove water content. Even single drop of water can make okra sticky and can spoil the recipe.So wipe each okra to remove water content.
Chop okra into thin slices as shown below

Heat 1 tsp oil in thick bottomed pan and fry okra till they are done.Don't add wate

Once they come down to room temperature, add curd, butter milk , salt and keep it aside.

Take 1 tsp oil in tadka pan and add mustard seeds. once they start spluttering add jeera, slit green chilies,curry leaves and hing to it.fry for another 1-2 mins.
Add this tadka to Okra and mix them well.

 Serve with rice.
