Lady's finger - 1/4 kg
Onion - 1 no

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

Wash and dry the lady's finger. Cut into long pieces, just the way it is cut for sambar. And make a slight slit in the middle without cutting it into two. Chop the onions into small pieces. Chop the green chilly also into small pieces.

Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and fry for a minute; add chopped onion and green chillies and saute for a few more mins. Add the lady's finger pieces, chilly powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder and mix well. So that all the turmeric pieces are coated well. Cover and cook on amedium flame. Stir occassionally.

Add salt and Amchur powder. Cook well till the lady's finger becomes soft and the raw smell goes.

Serve hot with rice. Goes well with rasam.

Note: Instead of using coriander powder and red chilly powder, sambar powder can be used.
