My mother’s lovely recipe for okra!
- Okra thinly sliced
- Olive oil (2 tbsp)
- Large Onion (chopped-optional)
- Garlic (2 cloves, chopped)
- Cumin seeds 1 tsp
- Turmeric 1/2 tsp
- Chilli powder 1/3 tsp
- Tomato puree (1tbsp) or 1 big fresh tomato
- 1/4 cup hot water
- Sea salt 1/2 tsp
- Dash of lemon
Fry the onions on high heat for a few minutes until translucent. Add the cumin seeds and keep stirring to prevent it from burning. Now fry the okra for around 5 minutes and then add in the tomato puree or tomato. Mix in all the spices and give it a good stir. Turn the heat down to medium/low and add in water gradually to fully cook the okra.
Season with salt and add a dash of lemon.
Naan bread or rice and some fresh green chillies.
