    Very good recipe to enjoy with daal and rice. With the this recipe you can easy convince your kids to have daal as now a days normally kids avoid to have daal as a source of protien. I tried deep frying okra in Ghee but it smells awful and I dont feel like eating it then. Can olive oil completely replace the ghee for deep frying ?

    • Shades of Kitchen says:

      This is good to serve as a snack. My kids love them. Never use ghee for deep fry. Use vegetable or sunflower oil. I usually use olive oil for less cooking like salads or stir fry.
