I’m back, after a hiatus from cooking! And I’m kicking things off with an easy-to-make tasty recipe from my mother. This is one of the ways bhindi (or okra) tastes really good.
Ingredients (serves 3):
Pan fry cut okra on medium heat till it’s not mucus-y any more; but the okra should still be green. My mother says to deep-fry, but I’ve found pan frying works as well.
If there’s remaining oil, wait for the oil to cool down. Otherwise, in a cold pan, pour ~2tsp. of high temperature oil and add the spices. Heat and stir till things start bubbling.
Add the grated tomato (or paste with ~1 cup water) and stir till all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly (~5 mins).
Add okra and salt (to taste), and stir.
Done! Eat with rice.
