Vendakka Mutta Thoran | Ladies Finger Eggs Stir Fry

SobhaKesavan S

Vendakka Mutta Thoran is a delicious and simple side dish prepared from Ladies finger and eggs. We prefer to have a simple and healthy side dish for lunch or dinner. Ladies finger is crispy, spicy and tasty when fried. In this recipe, you are combining ladies finger with eggs and the product is simply superb. Ladies Finger Eggs Stir Fry goes well with plain rice, roti, rasam rice etc. The dish is unique and special with cooked ladies finger blended with scrambled eggs and spices. Adding eggs makes the dish more tastier. Here I have added eggs straightaway to the fried okra pieces and scrambled to make it one pot stir fry. You can also scramble eggs separately and add to the ladies finger pieces. Kids love the simple Vendakka Mutta Thoran and you can pack in lunch boxes too. This Kerala style stir fry is a favorite and very popular dish. It is a great way to add some vegetables to your food. The addition of aromatic coconut adds up the flavor in the dish.

Okra / Vendakka is a simple green vegetable and is believed to add memory power. This is why most people prefer the dish especially for growing up kids. It is also a good source of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B, folic acid, calcium and lots of dietary fibres. Eggs are rich in protein and other vital nutrients. Kids love the colorful dish. A vital point to keep in mind is always prefer tender okra for the dish. The stir fried dish is always served with rice along with other wet gravy dishes. This stir fry dish brings nostalgic memories to many Keralites residing outside Kerala. You can explore a well detailed Ladies Finger Eggs Stir Fry recipe here that can be easily prepared at home.
