Vendai-Urulai Varuval (Potato & Okra roasted with mild spices)

A simple, yet tasty vegetable... I do this frequently and Okra-potato is one of my favorite combinations.


  1. Okra (Ladies finger/Bhindi) - 1 lb
  2. Potato - 1 medium
  3. Onions - 1/2 medium
  4. Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Corriander powder - 1 tsp
  6. Corriander leaves - to garnish

  1. Chop the okras into round shaped pieces.
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes.
  3. Finely chop the onions.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan fry the okras for about 10 mins in medium heat or until the stickyness is mostly gone.
  5. Add onions, chilli powder, corriander powder, salt and the potatoes and mix well.
  6. Sprinkle some water and cover it for a few mins.
  7. Open the lid, increase the heat, add corriander leaves and fry until they turn dark brown...
Can be enjoyed with Rotis as well as with any kind of rice...
