Vendakkai finger chips / Ladies finger chips / Bendakaya vepudu


A very simple recipe with the gorgeous ladies finger. It will suit people who dislike its gluey nature. Children will absolutely love it. I loved it the first time I made it and finished it within no time.


  

Ingredients :

Ladies finger / Vendakkai- 250gms
Gram flour / besan- 2 tbspns
Rice flour or corn flour- 2 tbspns
Red chilli powder- 1 tspn 
Jeera powder- 1 tspn
Pepper powder- 1 tspn
Salt to taste
Oil- 4 tbspns

Method :

Mix besan, rice or corn flour, red chilli powder, jeera powder and pepper powder with enough salt and make a thick paste using water. Now cut the vendakkai as shown in picture. Apply a thin coating of this flour mixture to vendakkai. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and slowly roast the marinated ladies finger until they become crispy and golden brown in colour. It makes a tasty, fiber rich snack or it goes very will with dhal and rice.

Taste enhancing tips for this recipe : Make a thick paste with the ingredients. Do not make a thick coating  of batter on ladies finger. Make a very thin coating. Slow roast the ladies finger to get the desired consistency. If you do it on high flame the ladies finger for sure will get charred. Happy cooking !!!

  15. Dear Manju
    I was in the Himalayas and could not read your blogs. I can see the suran fry too , will go there soon.
    I like Ladies finger ( Vendi) in its all form. I shall try this one soon to eat with rice and dal.
    I normally use 50:50 rice flour and corn flour and sprinkle the powder on vendi and mix.
    Never tried Besan mix...so this is a new dish for me and will make soon.
    have a nice weekend
