FMG 1-From my garden-Okra
Guess which vegetables's flower? There is a clue if you just look closely.
Yes,it is a Okra flower (vendaka).I caught the guessing bug from LG and now my vegetable knowledge seems to be increasing.
Last year, my mom had got seeds and we had a couple of wonderful okra plants. Good taste too.This year,had to resign myself to the plants from the nursery. It gives me an okra every alternate day, but the taste is a little dry. Anyway, so every weekend I am left with 3-4 okras. Just the right amount for a Okra Relish.(Vendaka Thottu Kootan.)I don't know how else to name it in english. So let me a get a snap of it and the recipe will be presented.
