Okra recipe
From: Sarah Gallagher

From Madhur Jaffrey's _World of the East Vegetarian Cookbook_:

  • 1.5 lbs okra
  • 6 T veg. oil (you really can use much less)
  • 2 onions
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt (can use less of this, too)
  • 1/4-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • freshly ground black pepper
Saute the onions and garlic in the oil for about 5 minutes. Add the okra and saute another 5 minutes (the okra should be a bright green after this). Add the spices and mix to coat the okra with them. Add 1/4 cup of water, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the okra is tender. Uncover and cook down until any water is gone.
