Stir fried Okra

Okra is the most underrated veggie because of its slimy texture. But if cooked properly you can get rid of the slimy texture and enjoy the okras.
Today I am sharing this recipe, so that people can enjoy this yummy veggie without worrying about the texture


Okras - 500gms
sliced Onion - 1 small 
Finely chopped G. Chilli - 2(can be replace by 1/2tsp R. chili powder)
Finely chopped ginger - 1/2tsp
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves 
Turmeric - 1/4tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1/2 TBsp


Heat oil in a wok on a medium flame. Add onion and curry leaves, saute till onions turn golden brown.

Now add okra, chilies, ginger, turmeric and salt. Mix well and cover the lid and let it cook for about 10 minutes.

Remove the lid, okras should be soft and of course slimy. Increase the flame and stir the okras with a light hand, try not to break any okras while doing so. Stir till the okras are dry and not slimy anymore. Add coriander powder and coriander leaves and stir till the okras get a slightly brown coat. turn of the flame now and the  okras are ready to be served. You can eat this with roti or serve as a side dish along with rice and dal.
I made it for lunch, so I had served with steamed rice, mixed dal and homemade flax seed sprinkle.
Lastly try making this this dish, if you haven't eaten okras in this form! 
I am new to blogging and will slowly add my dishes as and when possible. I am starting with simple food , and will continue to add all types of dishes.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
