This is a very good side dish to accompany a curry. The use of fresh okra is important, tinned okra is too mushy. Simple and quick to make with just a few ingredients this is a must dish.

The coriander and lemon really shine through in this dish. The okra is quite refreshing and would go nicely with a curry with lots of heat. Tasty and quick to prepare! Thanks Brian!
