How to make it

  • Slice the okra diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick frying pan; when hot, add the mustard seeds. As they begin to “pop,” add the dried red chiles and onion.
  • Stir-fry and cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes until the onion has softened, and then stir in the tomatoes, cucumber, garlic, ginger, and turmeric. Stir-fry for another 3 to 4 minutes and then turn the heat to high and add the sliced okra. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, season, and remove from heat.
  • Sprinkle with the grated coconut and serve immediately.

    Is this an Indian dish? It certainly sounds like it is. This might be a good side dish for an upcoming Indian meal.
