Here is a quick and easy okra recipe that goes very well with rice or as a side to any meal. I'd like to think this is an original recipe because I have not seen it mentioned anywhere, its been in our family for years.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a pan, add okra and shallow fry on very low heat for about 30 mins, tossing occasionally, till the okra looses its water content and becomes dark brown and crisp.
  2. Add cumin and coriander powder and fry for another 5 mins, add cayenne pepper and salt, toss and fry for another minute or so.
  3. Take pan off the heat, let it cool slightly, the okra should now be crunchy.
  4. Whip the yogurt to a smooth consistency, add okra from the pan and mix nicely.
  5. Serve immediately.

Yum! So I substituted sour cream for the yogurt and only used salt and pepper (sadly the only spices I have at the moment) and still it was super yummy. This will definitely be a go to recipe in the future.
