ಬೆಂಡೆಕಾಯಿ ಗೊಜ್ಜು /Okra in Green Sauce & MEME

We love Okra and one of our favorite dish is Okra Gojju. I love to cook it coz it goes well with rice/chapati/rotti. You have one side dish that is versatile, which translates to less cooking :D phew..can come out of the kitchen quickly. Here you go with the recipe :

You need the following:
okra/bhindi - 250g (wash, wipe and cut into half inch pieces)
onions - 1 large, cubed into small pieces

For Green Sauce you need:
Pottukadalai/roasted chanadal/huridakadale-1 fistful
Green Chillies-5
Grated Coconut-4tbsp
Coriander leaves-1 fistful
Coriander Seeds-1/2tbsp(fried/roasted on a pan)
Salt

Other ingrediants:
Tamarind Juice-2tbsp, Jaggery
Oil, mustard, curry leaves, pinch of turmeric for tampering

Heat oil in a wide non stick pan and add tampering ingrediants. Add okra pieces and fry them till okra does not stick to each other anymore. Add onions and sautee for a min and add water.
Allow to cok okra. It takes 5-8mins for okra to soften.
Blend sauce ingrediants into a smoothpaste with enough water. Do not add more water it might result in watery gojju which is not desired.
Add this green sauce to cooked okra. Add salt, tamarind juice. Use jaggery to adjust flavors. Bring them to boil. Let it cool down for 5 mins before you serve with rice/chapathi/rotti.
Enjoy!!!!
