Bendakaya Pachadi (Okra/Lady's Finger Chutney)

Bendakaya Pachadi (Okra/Lady's Finger Chutney)

Today's recipe is Bendakaya Pachadi (Okra/Lady's Finger Chutney). I can guess what you are thinking, it will be very sticky, right. I too had the same opinion until I tasted this tasty lady's finger chutney. I like the stickiness, but I felt it will be very sticky than okra fry or curry. But now,  as a Roti pachadi/chutney lover I  am so happy as I can make one more tasty chutney. I saw this recipe on sirisfood blog, she explained it very interestingly and gave a tip that adding curd to okra will reduce it's sticky nature. Thanks alot to siri for sharing such a tasty chutney recipe and the tip. I followed her tip and it turned out so good.The only change I made is added more green chillies instead of spice powder.
