Ingredients

How to make it

  • Peel stem of okra but do no cut it all off. Dip it in salt and when done sprinkle okra with a few spoonfuls of wine vinegar. Set aside (for 1 hour approx.) preferably in a sunny spot, if possible, while you prepare the rest. (If using frozen okra skip this step).
  • Wash and drain the okra.
  • In a non stick frying pan, slightly sauté the okra and remove with slotted ladle in a sauce pan.
  • Chop onions and garlic and sauté them in the remaining olive oil till translucent.
  • Add the tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for five minutes and pour the sauce on top of the okra.
  • Add some more water (about 1 cup), and simmer (without stirring as they will break) for about 30 minutes or until okra are tender, and sauce is nice and thick.
