As far as I am concerned okra is wrongly labeled as the red-headed step child of vegetables. This recipe is one of my favorite okra recipes. Right up there with okra, grilled onions and tomatoes. You MUST let it sit for a day to experience the full flavor of this dish. Don't let your fear of okra keep you from experiencing this great dish!

I enjoyed this a lot. I added some savoy cabbage to it to stretch the meal as I did not have 2lbs of okra. I also added chopped green chilies, and some green cardamon pods and finished it off with some fresh cilantro. The garam masala at the end makes it...Tastes good after sitting for a day or two..Would definately make this again.
