Pepper Okra Fry

Wish you all a happy and prosperous new year. I wish all your resolutions and dreams come true in this Chinese year of the tiger. So, I’m going to start off my first post of the year with a Chinese touch with some yummy spice 🙂

We usually make Sāmbhar using okra, but I’m going to share a unique recipe using okra in a Chinese style.



  1. Okra (Lady’s Finger) – 6
  2. Onion – 1
  3. Green Chilly – 1
  4. Garlic(Chopped) – 4
  5. Pepper Powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  6. Corn Flour – 2 tsp
  7. Maida (All purpose flour) – 1 tsp
  8. Egg – 1
  9. Oil
  10. Curry leaves



  1. Wash okra and pat dry with a tissue paper to remove stickiness
  2. Cut it into long pieces
  3. Mix 1 1/2 tsp of corn flour, Maida, egg, salt and 1 tsp of pepper powder
  4. Marinate okra pieces with the mix and keep aside for 30 minutes
  5. Dust marinated okra pieces with the remaining corn flour and fry till both sides are light brown
  6. Heat oil in a frying pan again and sauté chopped onion, garlic and green chilly.
  7. Add fried okra, 1/2 tsp pepper powder and stir well.
  8. Serve hot
