Saute first 3 ingredients in oil until golden brown. Next, add tomatoes
(as many as you like to eat) and simmer until sauce is formed. Add
spices proportionately (That means add as much as you like of each
spice, but not too much tumeric. Put enough so that you don't feel
like you are making a chunky tomato sauce because you have to add
okra and water) and cook for a few minutes. Add okra, as much as you
want, probably 10 okra for every person. Mix together and cook until
okra is cooked-not gumbo consistancy.
- 3 chopped onions
- 1 minced tsp fresh garlic
- 1 tbs minced ginger (fresh)
- 5 cloves
- cardomon powder
- curry powder
- black pepper
- red pepper powder
- okra (whole)
- tomatoes (diced)
Add salt to taste. Add a couple cups of water, bring to a boil
and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with rice.
NOTE-if you follow these directions, it will come out right. Experiment
to find the taste and consistancy that you like. Do not complain.
Western cooks are too nit picky, if you are a good cook, it should
come naturally and easily.
