  15. Looks yummy.. am not a great fan as they are slippery.. But love them when they are cooked up to slight crispiness as this.. Everytime I cut it in circles and they dont tend to be crispy but gets burnt out.. Shall definitely try this recipe cutting okra lengthwise... BTW wonderful pics as always...

  22. just 1 tsp oil..and the vendakka looks perfectly crisp!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ Mallugirl..Yes just 1 tsp oil is more than enough to get the above crispiness and that is why we suggest to do it in non stick vessel :-)
