    Chef Kate's Note:

    If you like it hot, use as many of the hot chilies as you like, or leave them out. With some grilled chicken or fish or shrimp, makes a very nice meal. Cooking time does not include defrosting time if you have to use frozen okra.

      for some reason, it was really hard to find an okra in tomato sauce recipe - even in all five of my Indian cookbooks. this was a great find and a universal favorite at my group's "Indian Night." the color is beautiful and the sauce flavorful enough it could easily go vegetarian w/ water instead of chicken broth. i'm going to try adding a bit of tamarind next time to try to approximate a dish i had in a restaurant that had a tart foil to the sweet tomatoes.

      I have been in the seaarch of a okra tomato dish as I fell in love with the pair while pregnant and this really hit the target. I too was worrisome about the texture as I used crushed tomatoes in a can, but it turned out "just right". I couldn't find any ground coriander at the commissary (down side to being stationed overseas...only ONE place to shop) so I am sure it would have been even more amazing. Thanks for posting this great dish
