I never thought I could make something good with okra, as I was not such an expert in cooking with okra until I make this. This is a very simple, and much tasty fries which can be served with any rice varieties or you could have this as just as a snack. In normal vendakai fry, we use to add just the masala powders and deep fry it however, in this there is a small difference in the ingredients. All you need is just to marinate everything and keep it for at least ½ hour for the ingredients to set well with the vendakai.

Okras are rich sources of dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins; often recommended by nutritionists in cholesterol controlling and weight reduction programs. This recipe is healthy as well as tasty, but as much as you reduce the volume of oil used is good. Iam sure you all will like and try this at your kitchen :) Here you go with the making.


  • Okra- 300 Grams
  • Corn Flour- ¾ Tspn
  • Rice Flour- 2 Tspn
  • Chili Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Coriander Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Curd- 1 Tspn
  • Turmeric Powder- ¼ Tspn
  • Asafetida powder- ¼ Tspn
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- To Deep fry


  • Marinate the okra with all the ingredients except curd and oil with spraying little water.
  • In the boiling oil, add the marinated okra to it and deep fry.Flip both the sides for even cooking.
  • In the middle before it gets cooked, add the curd and continue frying it.
  • After it turns golden brown, transfer to the paper towel and serve.


"Add only little water just like spraying while mixing all the ingredients with okra.

You can add few curry leaves, however it’s optional.

Do not cook for long time in the oil, as it may get burnt. Deep fry it until it becomes lite and crispy."
