Its a Chettinad speciality dish.Most of us think the chettinad dishes are famous for non vegetarian dishes,but there are whole lot of awesome veggie dishes in chettinad cuisine.This is one among them.Being a big fan of spice and sour foods.when I first tasted this dish at one of my friends place I became a fan of it.you can use any veggies to it even some dhals.I love this dish made with fresh okra.My mom used to say If you eat okra then you will be good at your math.I hate to eat okra when I was a kid,because of some kind of slaminess in that veggie.But now I started loving it lets hope I will be a math geneius in one day ha..ha..
This goes well with the simple dhal and plain rice with appalam on the side.

small onion/shallots-3-5(cut into medium pieces)
green chillies-5(slitted lengthwise)
tamrind-big lemon size(take juice of it)

sesame oil-1+1/2 tbsp
mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
In a kadai add the oil and add Mustard,zeera and curry leaves.when it starts spluttering add the onions and green chillies.
When the onion turned brown add the okra and fry it for 5-7 mnts.
Now add the tamrind juice,salt and turmeric.Add some water Let it boil for 4-5 mnts
