Okra/ Ladies finger Pepper fry

Inspired from here I tried this okra fry. Thanx lata for this wonderful fry. Woooow.. It came out very very crispy. I added pepper powder instead of red chilli powder. Also i have added curd and lemon juice to remove the stickiness that is present in ladies finger. Usually I add this while cooking in stove top too. Here comes my version of 100% microwave cooked okra pepper fry.



Fresh Okra/ Ladies finger - 250 g

Pepper Powder - 2 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp


Oil - 2 tsp

Curd - 1 tsp

Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp

To temper:

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

Hing - 1 tsp


1. Wash ladies finger and wipe them dry completely.

2. Cut into desired size. I slices very thin.

3. Mix salt, 1 tsp oil, pepper powder, turmeric powder, curd and lemon juice with the ladies finger and mix it well.

4. Rest it for 5-10 minutes.

5. In a MW safe bowl/ Tupperware bowl, Add 1 tsp oil and MW HI for 30 sec.

6. Remove and add mustard seeds, MW HI for 1 min.

7. Add hing and MW HI for 1 min.

8. Add the okra mixture and and cook covered on MW HI for 6 - 7 min stirring in between once or twice.

9. Rest it for 5 min inside the MW.

10. If you want more crispy, add few more minutes in the MW.

11. Open and serve with curd rice..
