Directions See How It's Made
- Fry frozen okra in hot oil until golden brown(this will ensure okra stays closed and not slimy.

- In a skillet combine tomato, onion, garlic, and jalapeno pepper and fry in about 1/8 cup oil until it becomes saucy.
- Then add water and tomato sauce to skillet and stir.
- Add okra and seasonings and let cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat.
