  • 15 okra, slit lengthwise as per instruction
  • 3 tablespoons gram flour / chickpea flour

  • Take them in a mixing bowl. Add all the ingredients in the list till 'oil for the deep frying'. Mix well. The salt in the mixture helps in giving out the moisture. No need to add water. See that okra pieces are uniformly coated with the spices.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan. Drop okra pieces while holding a bunch of it in hand, slowly releasing little by little into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd them. Let the fire be high in the beginning. Reduce the flame after 2 minutes. Make sure that okra cooks inside and becomes crispy.
