Firstly, clean ladies finger & fry it without any oil in a thick bottom pan (nammada cheena chatti 😉 ) until the watery feeling of ladies finger disappear.
For gravy: Fry fresh coconut until golden brown. To this add 1/4 tbsp fennel seeds, 2 tbsp coriander powder, 1/4 tbsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tbsp red chilli powder, 5 shallots, 1/2 inch length ginger, 6 curry leaves and stir fry until the masala gets heated.
Then switch off the flame and allow it to cool. After that, grind well adding enough water to make a fine paste.
Pour this to a clay pot and allow it to boil. You can add enough water as per your requirement. To the boiling gravy, add some chopped shallots, 2 green chilli and salt to taste.
After 5 minutes, add fried ladies finger to the gravy and allow it to cook for 2 minutes.
In parallel do a seasoning by heating oil (coconut oil) in a pan. Sputter Fenugreek Seeds (uluva), mustard seeds (Kaduku), dry whole chilli & some curry leaves.
Add the seasoning on top of curry and mix well. Check salt.
If salt is less, add and adjust it, as per your taste... If more .... ayoooo... be careful to add less salt. I felt, this curry tastes better with little less salt!!! Not a joke, actually I felt like that...
