Black beans and vendakai (okra)

I decided to combine two of my favourite foods and cook up a big batch that would last a couple days and be a complete meal that includes protein- from the beans.

Popped some cumin seeds to hot oil and added a couple chopped onions, green chili, garlic, and ginger. When translucent add the cut okra and fry till the stickiness is gone. Add the usual masalas- sambhar podi, dhania-jeera. Then add the beans(cooked) and canned crushed tomatoes. Cover and simmer until well cooked. Top with coriander leaves.
