VENDAKKAI PULI PACHADI | OKRA IN SWEET SOUR SAUCE




         Puli means sour and pachadi means sauce.  Vendakkai puli pachadi / Okra in a sweet sour sauce is a typical south Indian dish. I really love this dish because it has a perfect balance of all tastes like sweet, sour, spicy and salt. This is very easy to make dish for lunch. Always use tender lady's finger(okra) to make this pachadi. It goes well with white rice and kootu.
