But you have added in the video

Yes, my mil dont add jeera. But after your comment, I tried once with jeera and liked the taste so now I started adding jeera. Also Thoor dal along with channa dal. Both of them gave a nice flavour.

Please let me know if turmeric is added twice? First time to Okra and then again at the end to the yogurt also? So 1/4th tsp is added to Okra and then another 1/4th tsp is added once again to yogurt? Please clarify. I love your website and thank you for providing delicious recipes.

yes i have used turmeric powder twice, once for ladysfinger and other with the curd. Thanks for lovely words.
