Bendi Fry with Peanuts


Bendakayalu(Bendi) - 1 1/2 lbs
Onion (Medium) - 2
Peanuts - 1 cup
Curry Leaves - 1 Sprig
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Chana Dal - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp

1) Take a wide pan and add 3 tbsps of oil. After the oil heats up, add Mustard seeds,Urad Dal, Chana Dal and Jeera.
2) After the mustard seeds start to splutter, add peanuts, chopped onions, curry leaves and turmeric to the pan.
3) Fry the onions until half done and add chopped Bendi.
4) Start frying the Bendi, until half done. Add Salt and red chilli powder.
5) Continue to fry the curry until it is done.
Bendi fry and Tomato Pappu(Dal) is an excellent combination. My mouth is starting to water, just thinking about the combi.

Tips : Make sure you fry the curry without the lid on the pan(if not, Bendi gets soggy). Fry on medium heat.
