भेंडीची रस भाजी

I love various preparation of this vegetable. This is a typical Maharashtrian recipe and I love it. Though everyone in my family love bhendi, but this ras bhaji is not a favorite in my house. So made this one just for me :) 

Ingredients(serves 1)
12 okra
1/8 tsp tamarind pulp
3/4 cup water
1/8 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp kala/goda masala
1 tsp gul
1 tsp roasted coarse peanut powder
salt as per taste

For tempering
1 tsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of asafoetida 
Pinch of turmeric

Cut bhendi or okra into one inch pieces.
Keep your tempering ingredients ready. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin seeds. Once they crackle add asafoetida and turmeric. Throw in chopped bhendi. 
Add tamarind pulp along with water. Let the water boil, add chili powder, goda masala, salt, gul. Let it simmer until bhendi is nicely cooked. Lastly add coarse peanut powder. You will know it's done when color of the bhendi changes, it will become light green and soft. Serve it with roti/poli.
