Item 4, 6, 8 and 9 are available in any Indian stores.
- one lb fresh okra
- 2 big onions
- 1 red ripened tomato
- 1 Tablespoon fresh or dry coconut powder
- 1/4 bunch of cilantro - optional
- 1 tablespoon Tamarind paste
- 2 Tablespoon any veg oil
- 1 Teaspoon mustard seed
- 1 Table spoon any sambar powder
- Salt accordingly
very Simple... Wash okra in a bowl of lukewarm water, and remove
all the moisture using paper towels, it should be dry to cut. Chop
okra ringwise 1/2 inch thickness. Chop 2 + 3 + 5 into very small
on the stove: Place a pan with item 7, when it starts heating
up, add item 8, so that they split up, add chopped onions, fry till
golden brown, add chopped okra, fry till dark brown, add chopped
tomato, fry till water slowly disappears.
All this cooking should be done on med-high. then add 5 + 6 +
9 + 4 and very little bit of water, and 10, cook for atleast 15
-20 mins. if you like you can add 1/2 tablespoon of sugar.
More? This recipe is really very nice goes well with cooked white
rice and little bit of margarine. there is no question of slimy
thing. the trick is you got fry deep brown, dont care if one or
two becomes black, it really adds to the taste!!!
