Sri Lankan Bandakka Salada (Ladies Fingers / Okra Salad Recipe)




Bandakka or Lady Finger is a vegetable which has a watery taste. In Sri Lanka, we have different recipes with Bandakka (okra), however normally I cook another spicy dish if I cook bandakka. If not, it is difficult to match the taste of the meal. Few years ago I tasted Bandakka Salada in a buffet in a Sri Lankan restaurant. I cannot remember the exact location or name, anyway it was in Galle road between  Kaluthara and Colombo. That was really tasty. After that day, Bandakka Salada included in my menu time to time. For this recipe, adjust salt, pepper & lime juice as per your taste. Then, I am sure you would love Sri Lankan Bandakka Salada much!
