Lady's finger(okra) - 3-4, cut into small pieces (optional)
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Soak rice and cumin seeds in 1/4 cup of water for 20 minutes and grind it to a thick paste.

Heat oil in a pan and allow mustard seeds to slitter in it.

Add curry leaves, red chillies, onions and fry for 5 minutes.

Then add lady's finger and fry until they turn golden brown.
