Fried Okra with Spice Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g

2 tablespoons

1/2 teaspoon


1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon


Ghee or oil

Mustard seeds

Medium onion, finely chopped

Ground turmeric

Chili powder, optional

Salt or to taste

Garam masala

Method :
  • Wash the okra, cut off stalk ends and slice into bite-size pieces.

  • Heat ghee and fry the mustard seeds for a minute.

  • Then add onion and fry, stirring until it starts to turn golden.

  • Add turmeric, chili if use, salt and garam masala.

  • Add okra, stir well, cover and cook, stirring occasionally until okra is tender.

  • Serve as a vegetable accompaniment to rice or chapatis.

Note : It is important to buy tender okra, for the mature beans are tough and stringy. Test by bending the tip of the bean. If tender, it will snap but if old, it will merely bend and you will not be able to break it easily.
