Born in Middle Class. Lost his father at eight, Never completed school, college. Started composing Music, More than 100 Awards, Brand Ambassador for World peace by UNO, Yet He says “ELLA PUGAZHUM IRAIVANUKKAE” and this is “ISAI PUYAL ‘ A.R. RAHMAN “ Jai Ho.

Everybody is happy for the 2 awards we had got in Oscars. Rahman started a music school in Chennai, and my husband’s cousin is learning music. The selection is also by audition. I am very proud to say I am in Chennai.

This recipe also I saw in a cookery show. I made some changes in the recipe . The chef deep fried the Okras and then he added it. Usually, I use less oil, so i did n’t deep fry it , I just saute the okras. It tasted good and it become a favourite subzi for my family. My husband doesn’t like roti’s with dry subzi, he liked this. :-D


Okra/Bhindhi – 500 gms
Onion – 1
Tomato – 1
Red chili –powder as per taste
Salt as per taste

1. Chop the onion, tomato , Chop the okra in 1 “ piece.
