Vendaikkai Karakkuzhambu (Spicy Ladies Finger/Okra Curry)

If you are real spicy food lover, then here is a special recipe for you. This is very spicy and mouth-watering curry.  Also this can be made very easily in no time, that too with very less ingredients. This curry goes very well with white rice, idli and dosa.


Onion - 2 (cut lengthwise)
Tomato - 3 or 4 (cut to cubes)
Ladies finger (okra) - 1 cup (cut to inches)
Tamarind - 1 lemon size ball (1 tbsp tamarind paste)
Green chilli - 3
Chilli powder - 3 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Salt - to taste
Oil - 3 tbsp

Make about 1 cup of tamarind juice from the tamarind ball or paste, not too thick or watery.


1) Heat oil in a pan and add the onions.

2) Saute it for about a minute and add the okra.

3) Stir it well for about 2 mins to get rid off the sticky texture in okra. Then add the tomatoes.

4) Then add the green chillies and red chilli powder.

5) Now add the tamarind juice and necessary salt.

6) Let it boil for about 6 to 8 mins until the oil oozes out and gets little bit thicker.

7) Finally add curry leaves to it.

Spicy and tasty okra curry is ready to taste.
