Okra Fry | Bendakaya Vepudu

Okra Fry is a popular side dish in south india which is crispy and delicious. I usually make this fry when i make sambar / rasam. Okra Fry is a great combination with any rasam.
I do two things to avoid okras becoming sticky.  
After washing okras, drain the water and wipe them with a tissue or a cloth. Then chop the okras. So that while frying okras will not become sticky.
(OR) 
Cut the okras before day and store them in a plastic box & refrigerate it. Next day u can fry them.
