READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Girl from India

This is the fastest and best way I make okras for a week end short of cooking time day!

I can't wait to try your other recipes and have them saved. This one is a winner. My hubby HATES okra and ended up loving this. I might've stuffed in too much spice, but no matter, it was a perfect combo of flavor. I think we may have this weekly. So good, so good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and dry the okras.
  2. Remove the ends and then make a slit (not completely) through lengthwise so that you can stuff the spices into the okra.
  3. Do not cut the okra through and through.
  4. Mix all the spices and seasonings and stuff a small amount of the mix in each okra.
  5. Place the okras in a skillet and sprinkle with oil (I use a non stick).
  6. Cook stirring gently and occasionally from time to time so that it does not burn.
  7. YOu can also make this in a microwave on high for 3- 4 minutes.
  8. I love this with a dal and meat accompaniment or with phulkas.
