    Bint e Naeem's Note:

    Back in the days when I was a child every time my mother made this dish it was considered a treat among me & my siblings. Besides potatoes & peas, okra/ladyfinger is another all time favorite vegetable among the Pakistani population. It is usually served with roti/chapatti & yogurt or sometimes with Masoor Dal (lentil) here is the recipe of a basic okra curry that was passed down from my grandmother to my mom & down to me. It’s the tomatoes that give it a different taste compared to the other recipes posted so far. Note if you want to make "Bhindi Gosht" (Okra curry with mutton) after frying the onions add mutton, let it cook on medium low heat for 20 minutes, then follow the rest of the recipe. You can also add 1/2 cup water to make it a little saucy.

      A very nice dish! Favors were subtle and I think the left over were even more tasty than the first time around. Next time I make it I may toss in a fist full of chopped cilantro for some extra complexity.
