Okra/vendakkai/Bindi Pakoda

Yesterday evening it was raining here and I wanted to eat something crispy along with my tea.When I checked the fridge, to make something to eat ,okras were lying and suddenly I got an idea to make crispy pakodas with that.It can be made in a jiffy and it tastes heavenly and my son's favorite.I feel this a easy way to feed the vegetables to the kids.


Okra(vendaikkai) 20nos.
Besan(kadalai maavu)4tbsp
Rice flour2tbsp
Chilly powder1/2tsp
Turmeric powdera pinch
Curry leaves1sprig
Saltto taste
Oilfor deep frying


               Trim the top and bottom portion of the okra and cut them length wise.Add all the ingredients except oil and mix it well.Sprinkle some water if needed and keep it aside.

Heat the oil in a pan and deep fry it till it becomes crispy.

Serve it hot.

Enjoy it with a cup of tea or a side dish for rice varieties.

  • Keep the cut okra in fridge for 30 minutes to reduce the stickiness.
  • Thinly sliced onion and garlic can be added.
  • Red chilly powder can be substituted with slit green chillies.
