I made this with broccoli and cauliflower instead of okra. We did not use onions or tomato, however I did use all the spices. It was very spicy and flavorful. I loved that it was so easy and quick to make, and infinitely adaptable to whatever vegetables you may have on hand. I think I'll try it with carmelized onions, tomato, and cooked lentils next time.
