Ladies finger – Microwaved

Oflate many people have become diet conscious. Need to be since our day to day life involves very few to no exercise and the traditional food we consume is very rich in carbohydrates and fats.
But then we should not avoid fats completely. Because these are essentially needed to absorb certain minerals/vitamins which are soluble in fats.

So here I am starting a series of low carbohydrates/low fat and healthy recipes which I follow.

Ladies finger (okra) – 250 grams
Coriander powder – 2 grams
Garam masala powder – 2 grams
Chilly powder – 2 grams
Oil – 2 grams
Salt – to taste

  • Wash, dry and chop the ladies finger into smaller pieces.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, put the chopped ladies finger, add the needed amount of salt and microwave for about 5 minutes.
  • In a non-stick kadai, add the oil. When the oil heats up a little, add the powders and stir.
  • Now add the cooked ladies finger and stir fry for about 2 minutes.

Low fat ladies finger is ready! This would be a nice accompaniment to sukha chapathi.

100 grams of raw ladies finger has 31 kcal.
1 gram of fat/oil has 9 kcal
