I haven't used Ladies Finger to make different dishes but I have tasted variety tasty dishes from some places and houses. Ladies Finger is mostly used by North Indians and they are using it to make a lot of dishes. Ladies Finger is very good vegetable and it will be available in everywhere. It is very useful to our skin and it reduces sugar from body. Today, I am going to share one Ladies Finger dish which is called as Ladies Finger in Coconut Milk Gravy. You can understand that it is a traditional dish from its name because its main ingredient is Coconut Milk. We can make it very easily with limited traditional ingredients. I used very natural and tasty Green colour Ladies Finger to make this. I would like to have this dish as the side dish with hot plain Rice for lunch and it is super combination. You can use it with Chapati, Bread and Appam. Its main tastes and smell are Grated Coconut, Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil. This dish will be very useful to anyone who likes traditional dishes very much.
