How to Make Vendaka-Okra Thoran

  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a kadhai.
  • Add the mustard seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add urad dal and let it turn brown.
  • Saute the shallots until light brown.
  • Add curry leaves and the coconut-chilli paste and saute for a few minutes. Wait for the raw smell to disappear.
