Rayalaseema Special Bendkaya Bajji | Okra Curry | Bendakaya Pullagura | Vendakkai Recipe

25 mins Main Course

Nothing to beat the authentic taste of recipes that are generated in villages. I am eager to share the recipe of Ladies' Finger Bajji. It tastes spicy, sour, tangy and goes very well with Rice, Jowar Roti, Ragi mudde or pudding.

I don't know why it is called a Bajji. May be because it is very soft and crumnles easily.The same recipe is made in Andhra Pradesh,Tamil Nadu, Karnataka regions, but with small changes.In Andhra, it is called as Pulla Koora, Sour Curry. I am making this in the Rayalaseema region style, so I am making it in a mud pan, to get that authentic taste.

In Rayalaseema, there are other recipes of Bajjis as well which are similar to thisbut I will share the recipes in my coming videos.

Tips

  1. This Bajji needs more Oil, so that it doesn't stick to the pan and tastes good

  2. Do not overcook Onions and Tomatoes.They should be semi cooked, so that the Bajji will have the flavour of all these.

  3. Tender Ladies' Fingers or Okra are ideal to make these Bajjis. Remove the stickiness of Okra by frying them on a high flame.

  4. Add water only when the Okra are properly fried. Cook them till they become soft. Make it semi liquid form, so that you can mix it easily. It should not be thick like Chutney. Add Ghee to it.

  5. Bajji will be sour, add Salt and Chilli powder accordingly, to make it tasty.
