Step 1) Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, Once the seeds pops out add urad dal and curry leaves . Then add chopped shallots and saute it for a minute. We can also use 1/4 regular onions instead of shallots.
Step 2) Next add the lady's finger and saute it for 2 more minutes. Use tender ones to get best results. Next add turmeric and chili powder , required salt and mix well.
