This is the first time I've had okra (yep, I'm a yankee) and this was delicious. A wonderful blend of flavors, and very simple to make. I'll definitely make this again.
I used fresh okra to make this and served it over Perfect Rice Everytime for a delicious vegetarian dinner. I did serve hot sauce on the side to kick it up a notch.
