A delicious and tangy okra curry from Southern India
Bendakaya Pulusu is a very popular okra curry from Andhra Pradesh.Bendakaya is a telugu word for Okra and pulusu means stew .Bendakaya pulsu is basically a sweet and sour medium thick curry which is usually served with steamed rice.It is quite simple and easy to make and taste so delicious.
In Northern India we often make dry curry with bhindi like- Bhindi masala or Crispy fried bhindi , Stuffed bhindi Sambhariya or some times Bhindi Raita but rarely makes okra in thin watery curry so when I first heard about this pulusu I was little skeptical about the taste but when I made and tasted it I loved it so much that I repeated it the next week .
The fresh taste of tomato and curry leaves combines so well with fenugreek ,tangy tamarind and jaggary. So do try this pulusu to add some variety in your routine okra dishes. Bendakaya pulusu and steamed rice is truly a comfort soul food.
