Okra/Bhindi/Ladies finger goes well with rice and chapathis. Few years back, a gujarathi friend called us for dinner and served pulkhas with this hot stuffed okras. It taste wonderful when it is hot. With chapathi it would be a dry subzi, combined with dal it is a wholesome meal. I have done this with okra, you could try with brinjal or bitter guard.

Ukkarai or ukkali is a traditional sweet done with lentils. Some of them have different versions. I have done with chana dal, some do with moong dal, and a combination of rice and dal. If rice is soaked and added the ukkali will not be that soft. A spicy version with toordal and rice is here.

Vegetable dum briyani is slightly a dry version than normal vegetable briyani. I always do the latter, so for a change wanted to try dum briyani. I did the stove top method, you could try in oven too. Everyone has their own versions. This one does not have too many masalas. A mild version, if you want it to be strong add briyani masala, which has more flavor.
