Masala Bhindi

This is a dish that I learnt from my mom. Plus I have altered it a little.

Ingredients :
Lady's Finger/ Okra : 1/2 kg
Ginger : 1 tsp (Finely Chopped)
Green Chilli : 1 (Finely Chopped)
Tomato : 2 (Finely Chopped)
Cumin Seeds/ Jeera : 1/2 ts
Oil to Temper
Salt according to Taste

Spice Powders:
Turmeric Powder : 1/4 tsp
Coriander Powder : 1 tsp
Chilli Powder : 1 tsp
Amchur Powder : 1/2 tsp

Procedure :
1. Wash, wipe and cut the head and tail of Lady's Finger; and chop it into tiny pieces.
2. Heat oil and add cumin seeds; once the seeds start crackling add green chilli and ginger.
3. Now add the tomatoes and cook till it turns mushy; and add the spice powders.
4. Now add the chopped Okra and close the pan with a lid and cook it in the mushy Tomato.
5. Sprinkle salt. You will know its cooked when the stickiness of lady's finger disappears.
