Lady’s Finger -1\4 kg
Onion -1 sliced
Green chillies -2 slit
Turmeric powder -1\4 tsp
Pepper powder -1\4 tsp
Salt -to taste
Oil – 2 tbsp


Wash and clen the Lady’ fingers. Wipe them with a towel. Cut them into one inch pieces. Heat oil in a nonstick pan, put in onions and greenchillies. Saute it for a few seconds. Add turmeric and pepper powders. Also add the Lady’s finger and salt. Mix well and cover it with a lid. Cook on a low flame. Mix it very five minutes and again keep covered. Cook until it is tender.
