Summer !

Today is one of those lucid summer days which makes you believe that anything is possible. Know the ones when your entire backyard gleams like a big blurry ice cream sundae topped with glistening streams of golden caramel running down? Today is that kind of a day. On such days I close my eyes and dream wide and far, but almost always ends up thinking about getting on to an escalator for a change. Suddenly all my little ambitious thoughts comes to a halt . Some things are better left untried J On the other hand; frying some okra, taking some pictures, and posting it in the blog after about two and a half years looked completely feasible. So here it is, because today is beautiful!

Spicy crunchy fried okra

Okra – 12
Turmeric – ½ tsp
Chili powder – 1 tsp
Chickpea flour – 1 tsp
Rice flour – 1 tsp
Salt – ½ tsp (or to taste)
Oil – to deep fry

Trim and halve okra, keep in a bowl. Sprinkle all listed ingredients except oil over the cut okra pieces, and mix well with hands. The mixture will be dry; please do not be tempted to add some more water. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes. Heat oil in a pan, and fry the marinated okra pieces till golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Have some with rice; snacking might work just as well.

Happy Summer, Archana! This one is such a popular recipe, yet, for some reason, I have never tried it!
