    The reason for the 4 star instead of 5 is because I used these spices with squash (a tasteless vegetable in my opinion) and it turned out great. I know it will be a 5 star using okra as soon as I can find it in this "northern" state of existance. I also used the tamarind concentrate, but probably did not use enough. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Very tasty. This was the first time I've used fresh okra and it was wonderful. I was able to get lovely fresh Organic okra and the okra flavor really shone through. I thought that the spicing was wonderful- you can still taste the spicing and the tamarind, but the fresh flavor of okra is really the star.

    Simply delicious. I increased the amount of green chillies and fried them up well with the onions before adding the okra. Will be a regular at my household.
