Okra Tomato Curry Recipe with step by step instructions.తెలుగు వెర్షన్.
Okra is high in fiber, vitamin A, vitamin c, and Magnesium etc..Our elders used to say that if you eat okra you can do Mathematics better. Okra tomato curry is one of my husband’s favorite recipes. All his favorites bring a headache to me(just kidding). I’m too lazy to rinse and clean okra. so I always rinse them on before night, cut them and keep in the refrigerator. This saves a lot of time on the next day morning.
When I was a child, one day my mother asked me to pick okras, which were grown in our backyard. I was totally unaware of spines on them. Immediately I got rashes and was totally afraid. My mother applied some oil to my hands. Soon they got disappeared. So it’s better to wear gloves until you have added it to your dish (in case if your skin is sensitive). in the video version, you can see me picking okras which were grown at our farm-house.
few instructions to get a perfect bhindi tomato curry.

If you have no time in the morning you can cut them on previous day’s night and keep in the refrigerator. add 1 tbsp yogurt or buttermilk to reduce the gum while cooking okra. don’t overcook okra.
