Ladies fingers pachadi recipe

Ladies fingers - 6, sliced into thin rounds, fresh tender ones, do not wash in water instead wipe with cloth to remove stickiness from it.
Ghee or oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
Green chillies - 2, small ones, chopped
Salt - 1/4 teaspoon or adjusted to taste
Curd - 1 cup, thick and sweetish

Method: Make the oil very hot. Add the mustard seeds to splutter, the green chillies, and then the rounds of ladies fingers. Saute very well in the oil and cover it to become very limp. Add a sprinkling of water, salt, and boil till soft. Remove from heat and allow it to cool. Combine with curds and serve. Enjoy!
