Bendakaya Palli Fry/Bhindi Peanuts deep fry/Lady fingers Peanut deep fry

Bendakaya is good for health especially to improve memory in children. In my childhood, my mom used to make this Bendakaya curry in different methods like Bendakaya palli fry, Bendakaya mudda koora, Bendakaya pulusu, Bendakaya pakodi koora etc...Bendakaya is rich in fibres and contains vitamins A,B.C & K and also have minerals such as Iron,magnesium,calcium and manganese.Today I want to share Bendakaya palli fry. This Bendakaya palli fry suits with hot steamed rice,Sambhar and ghee.(Whenever I make this fry, I make tomato green chilly chutney too.) In vegetarian marriage functions this bendakaya palli fry is most important dish and you can't miss it!!To make this fry we need fresh,tender Bendakayalu / Bhindi.


Ingredients :

Bendakayalu / Lady fingers/Bhindi                         :        500 gms
Peanuts                                                                     :         1 cup
Oil                                                                             :         For deep frying
Salt                                                                            :         as per taste
Red chilli powder                                                      :          2 - 3 table spoons
Curry leaves                                                               :          10-12



Method to make Bendakaya Palli fry :

1. I usually wipe bendakayalu with wet clean cotton cloth and keep aside for one hour.
2. Chop bendakayalu/Bhindi into 1/2 inch size pieces.
3. Now heat oil in a pan for deep frying
4. Once oil gets heated then fry Bendakaya pieces in 3 to 4 batches.
5. Once they fried they become little soft and colour will change.
6. Repeat the same process with remaining pieces.
7. Now drain the excess oil from bendakaya pieces.
8. Now take a pan, add oil,fry peanuts ,curry leaves on medium flame for few seconds.
9. Now add fried bendakaya pieces, add salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder(you can add
    dry coconut powder too) mix well and saute them for few seconds.
10. Transfer this into a bowl and garnish with fried curry leaves.
11. Serve it with hot hot steamed rice,sambhar,tomato green chilli chutney and ghee.
