Lady's Finger/ Okra fry

This dish I had for the first time in my friends place at a birthday party. When I asked her for the recipe, she readily shared with me. Thanks for her.

Coming to the recipe, this is a crispy fry you can have along with any variety rice.





Lady’s Finger/ Okra – 1 cup thinly sliced

Gram flour – 1/4 cup

Rice flour – 1 tbsn

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Red chilli powder – 2 tsp

Curd – 2 tbsn

Asafoetida – a generous pinch

Salt – as required

Oil – for deep fry


  • Mix all the ingredients except oil.
  • Deep fry in batches till golden brown.
  • Serve warm with any variety rice.






  1. After mixing all the ingredients, immediately fry. If  kept aside the fry will not be crispy.
  2. When you drop Okra, the oil must be really hot. After that keep it in medium flame.
  3. You can replace curd by squeezing 1/2 lemon.

    OMG this looks so good…I LOVE okra! We only get it fresh like 1 month in the summer, but I’m saving this recipe 🙂
