Okra with Green Gravy


Sweet memory of this diwali vacation…
After long vacation I post my recipe. I was visited to my uncle’s and brother home in this diwali vacation. I enjoy a one week vacation with all my cosines. When we are separated no one say any one to bye because every one eyes with full of tears. My one cosine brother is study in hostel. He is studying in 8th- standard and living in hostel. One cosine sister is study in vallabhvidhynagar for his bachelor degree. Other cosines are working. All meet after long time in diwali. We all together in diwali vacation because we have only this time have same day holiday so we don’t left the time to live with each other. This one week is very important to all. All parents are complaining when we all together and only talking talking and talking..........Some time we all talking up to 2 pm. But this is sweet memory for all of us. We all are waiting for this one week. We decided we meet at least one week in every six month. Some time we are playing cards together with all elders and enjoy a lot. We see OSO movie again in theater because my one younger cosine brother want to see this film in theater so we all see one more time but not like to separated for 3 hours. Our parents say we all are crazy to live together. We enjoy with lots of fun!!!!

Kajal.. That's so true.. I grew up being very close to all my cousins and enjoyed my holidays with them. Now, however, each of us is married and in diff. countries so difficult to meet up. I do understand how impt this is.

The okra in green gravy looks wonderful. very different from the usual.

leanne said...

hi kajal!!!!! first of all i am compleatly in love with your blog and recipes!! last night i made your okra with green gravy dal roti and rice!!! it was amazing! i had made a few ajustments to suit my pantry. i used cashews instead of peanuts as i am not keen on peanuts, and i added some tumeric by habbit when frying the okra but it all still came out nice. just one question though... if two tablespoons of the seed are too much for your taste< can i lower the amount to maybe 1/2tsp or 1tsp? thank you kindly! xxxx
