DIRECTIONS

  • Cut each okra pod in half lengthwise and set aside. If there are any pods longer than 4 inches, cut them in half crosswise and then lengthwise.
  • Heat the olive oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onions along with the salt and cook until they begin to turn golden, approximately 4 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
  • Add the tomatoes and sugar if using. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Decrease the heat to low and add the ginger, pepper, cardamom and okra. Stir to combine. Cook, uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, taste and adjust the seasoning as desired. Serve immediately.
