    Daydream's Note:

    The earthy flavor of mushroom and the sweet nutty flavor of okra combine delicously in this easy Indian curry. The best way to eat okra is when it is young and freshly picked. I prefer to cook it whole. Just wash and dry the okra and trim the stem ends. Be careful not to slice into the pod itself and allow juice to escape. This can be a main dish for 4 people or a side dish for 6.

      This was edible, but it was also disappointment. I was looking for an okra recipe, to see if I like okra, but I think I'll keep looking.

      I found the seasoning bland. I also agree that is too watery. I tried adding tomato paste and molasses, but that didn't help much. I prefer my curry thicker, with more complex flavor.

      This was really good! I used cremini mushrooms. I also used 1 tsp coriander and 1 tsp cumin (2 tsp total) in place of the coriander and cumin seeds. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch at the end to thicken it up as well, it was just a little too watery looking to me. We had it with jasmine rice and a mango relish. I will definitely make this again.

      The flavors were a little to earthy for me. It didn't taste like traditional Indian curry to me.
