This crispy deep-fried Lady’s finger is my family favorite. I tasted it for the first time at my home when my sis made it. This is her recipe. She usually deep fry the okra fully so I too follow the same. You can also cut them into pieces and marinate with the same spices and fry them. This fry goes well with Rice, any curry or kuzhambu and also with variety rice.
