Lady Fingers Recipes

Lady fingers - 200 grams
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Shallots - 1 Cup
Green chillies - 5 (Reduce as per taste)
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Curry leaves - 8-10
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Salt - As required

Chop lady fingers into small roundels. Add the chopped shallots, coconut, green chillies and salt to the lady fingers and mix well. In a pan, heat the oil. When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the curry leaves and the lady fingers mixture. Saute it on a low flame till done.

Stewed Apples

6 or 8 apples, according to size. 1 pint water. 40 lumps sugar. A few cloves.

Dissolve the sugar in the water, peel and core the apples (but do not cut them), and place them with the cloves in the syrup, stew very gently for about ten minutes, then turn the apples and simmer for another ten minutes, or until they are tender, but not broken. When done, place them in a pretty dish, and fill the hollow part with jam or custard. Reduce the syrup by boiling it over the fire for a few minutes with the lid off, strain over the apples, and allow to cool before serving.
