Vendaikkai  Varuval  (வெண்டைக்காய் வறுவல்) is a deep fried dish which we can serve with any Rice.
A regular item in South Indian wedding lunch or dinner menus.

Ingredients Needed:-
1. Vendaikkai  - 2 cups. (Cut into long pieces as shown in pic )
2. Oil to deep fry (I usually fry this in batches so frying is done in less oil)

Ingredients for coating:-
1.   Gram flour (Kadalai Mavu) - 2 tablespoon
2.   Rice flour ( Arisi Mavu) - 2 tablespoon
3.   Hing / Perungayam
4.   Salt to taste
5.   Tamarind water (here I used tamarind paste)
6.   Ellu /Sesame seeds  - 1/2 tsp
7.   Omam / Ajwain  - 1/2 tsp
8.   Turmeric Powder 
9.   Dhania powder - 1/2 tsp
10. Jeera powder  - 1/4 tsp
11. Red Chilli powder  1-1/4 tsp (according to taste ) 
12. Water as needed

1. Wash, wipe out the water and cut Lady's finger into big pieces.

2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients with little water to coat the vegetable.
This mix should be thicker than Bajji batter.

3. Add in Lady's finger and mix well.

4. Heat oil in a Kadai, fry in batches till golden and crisp.
