Simple food on some days are the best. Its comforting and reassuring. Cooking lady’s finger can be quite tricky. They really get gooey if not cooked properly. There are so many variations to cooking lady’s finger, but this one is loved the most at home. 

Serves: 4
300 gms lady’s finger, washed, dried, cut into 1 inch pieces,
1 large onion, chopped finely,
1 large tomato, chopped finely,
1 tsp ginger garlic paste,
1 tsp mustard seeds,
1 tsp cumin seeds,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp red chilli powder,
1 tsp amchoor or dry mango powder,
1 tsp garam masala powder,
2 tbsp oil,
Salt as per taste


  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds and allow it to crackle. Add the onions and fry until golden brown in color.
  2. Add the tomatoes and ginger garlic paste and fry well. Add the turmeric and red chilli powder and mix well. 
  3. Once the oil separates, add the cut lady’s finger pieces and mix well. Add salt and mix well.
  4. Do not cover the pan. Allow the lady’s finger to cook on its own for some time. 
  5. Once cooked to satisfaction, add the dry mango powder and garam masala and mix well.
  6. Garnish with green coriander and serve hot.

Serve this with hot steamed rice or roti’s. They taste delicious.

Enjoy 🙂
