Black and White Wednesday - August 29 - Week 47

Black and White Wednesday - August 29 - Week 47:

Susan, authoress of the well-seasoned cook blog was lining up the hosts some time back. I was impressed to see the hosts lined up. On her confirmation hosting Week 47's BWW for this week.

Was on rest for 3 months as I underwent few surgeries. Kick started today after seeing the mails sent from BWW-Week#47 participants.

Before posting it let me tell you the importance of these two colors "Black" and "White".


Black is the color of authority and power. It implies submission. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless.


White symbolizes innocence and purity. White reflects light and is considered a summer color. White is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is light, neutral, and goes with everything. Doctors and nurses wear white to imply sterility.

Recipe introduction:
South Indian Thali
South Indians have more rice compared to North Indians, and a South Indian Veg Thali definitely consists of poriyal, sambar/pappu, rasam, curds and rice. I have two fries instead of poriyal in this Thali.

My thali comprises of:
Carrot Poriyal
Okra Fry

In this post, I am speaking about Okra Fry.
Chopped Okra / Bhindi - 2 cups
Vinegar - 1 1/2 tsp
Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
Channa Dhal - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste (2 tsp)
Red Chilly Powder - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Okra Fry
Oil - 2 tbsp

Heat wok/kadai with oil in that
Add mustards to it and allow it to splutter, followed by urad dhal and channa dhal Add vinegar to the mixture and immediately add Okra  to the oil and fry them well
Finally once you feel Okra is crispy or it is done, add salt and red chilly powder and mix well
Serve as part of your thali

Note: Vinegar was added to retain the shape of the bhindis. Learnt from my hubby.
