Ladies finger with yogurt curry/sauce
Member Name: aksram
Advantages: mild, creamy, very few ingredients needed
Ladies finger with yogurt sauce/curry is a very mild and creamy curry and mainly eaten with rice. It is commonly served in the south indian weddings. It is quite simple to make.
Serves 2 people
Ladies finger- 250 grams
Onion- 1 medium chopped
Garlic- 1 pod- chopped
Green chilly- 1 or 2 depending on how spicy you want- just slit them
Turmeric- 1/4 tsp
Oil- 1 tbsp
salt and asofaetida (known as hing in india)
1) In a saucepan, Add garlic, onion and green chillies. Stir until onions are slightly browned.
2) Slice the ladies finger into small pieces-approx 1cm each
3) Add these to the pan along with some salt and asofaetida. Stir fry it until the ladies finger gets cooked and slightly browned. Dont add water as this will make very stringy and gluey.
4) In a glass, just mix yogurt, turmeric and a little water- around 50ml
5) Now keep the hob on very low flame and add the yogurt mix to the ladies finger. Just stir it lightly but dont cook it too much otherwise the yogurt goes bad. Garnish with coriander leaves.
The cooked dish looks slightly yellow and creamy.
This dish can also be stopped at step 3 and just used as a stir fried veg side dish.
Ladies finger is available in Tescos, Asdas and also other indian shops. Remember that this vegetable reduces in quantity when cooked- meaning when you cut the ladies finger it might fill a bowl but when cooked it might just fill it half way through.
Until other indian curries, this is non spicy but still got great flavours. Try and enjoy this recipe.
Summary: If you want to try any indian curry but dont like spicy food, then this could be just the one.
