Instructions
  1. Wash the ladyfingers and pat them dry. Usually, I do this in the night and keep them wrapped in a kitchen towel. I used to clean them with kitchen towels but my maid prefers this method.
  2. Cut them in bite-sized rings. The small the rings faster they cook. The size mine are cut it takes longer to cook but then they hold shape too which is very important in my family.
  3. Soak tamarind in water squeeze out the pulp and set aside.
  4. Heat a kadhai/wok with oil.
  5. Add the mustard seeds once they crackle add the jeera, hing, turmeric.
  6. Add the ladyfinger rings and sauté for a few minutes. The lady finger will change colour a little.
  7. Add tamarind juice, salt, cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until ladyfinger cooks nicely. Add water if needed.
  8. Once the ladyfinger is done add jaggery, Goda masala, and Peanuts powder (if using).
  9. Boil for a minute or 2.
  10. Garnish with coriander leaves and coconut.
  11. Serve hot with rice or Chapattis.
