Vendaikaai fry/Poriyal, This is very very simple recipe,i love this vegetable a lot, when ever i saw this fresh ladies finger in shop i remember and mom and dad, My dad is a diabetic patient, he used take the fresh vendaikaai from back yard, and mom cook this.. most of the days plates will fill vendaikaai..
This vegetable is a diabetic friendly vegetable, Those who have diabetic wash 2-3 vendaikaai, remove the head and tail, chop them into pieces, take 1/4 cup of water in bowl and add the chopped vegetable and keep it over night and early morning eat the soaked vendaikaai along with the oily water in empty stomach, this vendaikaai water played the role of insulin, and helps to reduce the sugar level.. this is a proven myth.. and cooking this vegetable for me it really a challenge to do in early.. Mom prepare very simple fry chapathi/Roti, that’s awe combination, most of the time i end with poor result, later after browsing lot and lot info from google, i got a clear preparation and cooking method for vendaikaai here i share the one of the easy way to cook this, please check the note for other info and tips.. hope this post will help you…
