Wash the ladies finger and pat dry. Spread on a newspaper to absorb any extra moisture. Meanwhile make a paste of tomato, dry chilli, cumin seeds, turmeric powder in a blender. Once the ladies fingers are thoroughly dry, cut into slit pieces. Heat 2 tspn oil in tava. Add the paste first, with salt. When tomato is much cooked and the raw smell is gone add the vege and mix well. Pour the remaining oil and stir fry then and then. Need not close the lid. Stir fry till the vege is cooked. Serve hot with chapathi or goes well with any sorts of rice.

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.” ― Laurie Colwin
