Okra Pachidi with Coconut Milk

02:58 Niloufer Riyaz 17 Comments

Today Im sharing you a simple pachidi which I learnt from my mother. Unlike the usual pachidi where we add tamarind and masalas, this is a different one, the okras are cooked in coconut milk n no masalas. My mother used to make them everytime she makes fish biriyani or fish kurma.
Sending them to Veggie/Fruit a month- Okra guest hosted by Kiran event by Priya Mitharwal and also to Priya Mitharwal's event BSI-OKRA

You need:
Okra                            6nos
Onion                          1nos( medium n sliced)
Tomato                        1/4nos( diced)
Coconut milk                1/2cup
Green Chilli                  2nos
Turmeric powder         1/2tsp
Mustard seeds             1/4tsp
Fenugreek seeds          1/4tsp
Curry leaves                 few
Ginger n Garlic paste    1/2tsp
Oil                             1- 1 1/2tbsp

Cut the top n bottom of the Okra n slice them diagonally into 2-3pieces.
Heat oil add mustard n fenugreek seeds n fry till mustard splutters. Add the onion n Okra and fry for 2 minutes.
Add curry leaves, ginger garlic paste n fry for 30 seconds. Add the tomato n fry for 30 sec again.
Add the salt, green chilli n turmeric powder n coconut milk.
Add 1/2cup of water n cook till it the gravy thickens n forms into pachidi.
Remove from fire n if you want you can add lemon juice now.'
Serve hot
