How to make it

  • - Wash the okra under running water. Cut off the ends of the okra. Pat the okra dry with a clean kitchen towel. If you leave them wet, your dish will end up sticky and slimy. Slice into halves and set aside.
  • - In a wok or a heavy skillet, heat the oil and stir-fry the onions until they become translucent. Throw in all the spices except the garam masala and stir-fry for another minute. Add the tomatoes and cook the mixture over medium-high heat. Stir constantly till it takes on a uniform consistency. You will be left with a thick sauce. Now add the okra and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  • - Ensure that the okra is evenly coated with the sauce. But do not stir vigorously as this will cause the okra to get mashed. Cover and steam over medium heat until tender (about 15 minutes).
  • - Serve the okra on a warm serving plate and sprinkle the garam masala over it.
  • Smart Tips
  • - Do not overcook. Turn off the heat while the okra are still firm.
  • - Do not overheat the oil as this will cause the onion and spice mix to burn.
  • - Garnish with coriander leaves. You could also add chopped onions to spice up the dish.

    Thanks for this posting. Most people either love okra or they hate it. I like it once in a while, but it's hard to find new or different recipes. This one sounds like one that would be good.
