Blog revival with a simple curry

Its been months since I posted here, well the truth is I am in India, and before coming here I had planned on making something new everyday and posting it here. I am learning a lot of new dishes at my in laws place, but somehow never got around to posting them. But today I saw my mother in law make a curry that was so easy to prepare and so tasty, that I couldnt help, but post it. The photo unfortunately is missing, as we polished it off before I could get hold of a camera and take a snap.

2 cups Okra cut in halves
2 cups ridge gourd peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
2 tbsp jaggery grated
extract of small lemon sized ball of tamarind
1 tsp urad dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2-3 red chillies
salt and chilli powder to taste
oil for tempering

Heat oil in a kadhai, add red chillies, urad dal, mustard seeds and cumin seeds, when seeds begin to splutter, add ridge gourd, okra, salt, chilli powder, tamarind extract and jaggery. cover and let it simmer until well cooked and all flavors develop...very simple to prepare, and finger licking good
