Vendaikkai Masiyal |Ladies Finger in dal curry

Vendaikkai Masiyal is a simple dish. This is my favorite , my mom prepare this masiyal when ever i go . Best combination with steamed rice and potato fry. I make this often here and this is a favorite dish for my daughter too. This will not taste like sambar, but this will looks like sambar.Here i have used toor dhal, we can use moong dhal also instead of toor dhal.
                                Fenugreek changes its taste and  this will be aromatic, I can call this masiyal as an authentic recipe. When it is prepared in Kal Satti it tastes awesome. My mom prepare all the  kuzhambu varieties in Kal Satti. That gives a different taste and aroma. Simple recipe at home for a change, try it out instead of sambar  and  Here we go in to the recipe.
