Stir Fried Okra

This is one of my favorite recipe for Okra.I have been making this for quite sometime and every time it tastes even better. I pan fry the Okra to cut the slime out. My husband loves this Stir Fried Okra with Roti/Bread for lunch or dinner. I prepare this Okra Recipe within 20 minutes, and serve as a quick side dish.

Ingredients: Stir Fried Okra
  • 1 lb Okra
  • Half Medium Sized Onion
  • Half Medium Sized Tomato
  • Green Chilli (as per taste)
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Mango Powder (Amchur)

 I slice the Okra about 1/2 inch thick. Heat very little oil in a pan and add the Okra, stir fry them till you do not see the slime. Add salt to it. Take them out in a dish when they are almost done. You can use the same pan or wash the pan and use it again for the rest of the recipe. 

Heat 1tsp oil, add the Cumin Seeds, then the onions and green chillies. Fry them on high heat, for about 2 minutes and add the chopped tomatoes. Next add all the spices and stir them together. To this mixture now add the cut and fried Okra and mix them well on high heat. Do not cook the onions and tomatoes for long, if needed you can sprinkle some water, I keep the dish dry so that the Okra remains crisp. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with Roti or Rice.
