Bhindi/Okra/ Ladies Finger Fry
I wanted to take a click when I was done with the dish and went to our patio deck to capture the best light. My little one who is a "curious George", also followed me. He started playing in the yard and I had to go back to get my camera.Then I heard him screaming with joy and came back running, thinking that he might be done with the fry and my bowl :-) But to my surprise I saw a wild bunny sitting next to him.The cute bunny looked very friendly and the happiness on my little guy's face was priceless. I felt close to nature and wilderness!
Getting back to the point,this fry is a hit in our family now. Though my daughter prefers to have more peanuts in it, she likes the okra too
