  • Just add garam masala if your prefer. 
  • Cooking in low flame covering with lid helps to remove stickiness fast and the veggie to get cooked faster.
  • It also helps to retain the color of ladyfinger.
  • I always cook the lady’s finger until the stickiness goes off. Few love to eat when it is fried completely.
  • So choice is yours in that case. Apart from health benefit taste also matters sometime.
