Again, this is one of my mother's recipes. It goes well with basmati rice and other slightly heavy curry.
Ingredients ( Serves 4)
25 Okras, washed and sliced into 1.5 inch pieces
1 small onion, sliced thinly
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tomato, cut into medium sized cubes
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
Salt to season
Extract of 1 inch tamarind pulp
Grill the Okras with minimal oil and drain on paper towel.
Heat a pot of oil and fry the onion and curry leaves.
Add in the spices, tomato sauce, salt tamarind and give it a stir. Let it cook for 2 mins.
Then, stir in the tomato pieces and cook again for 2 mins.
Lastly add in the grilled okra and let them absorb the tomato gravy.
