Wash and dry okra thoroughly, then chop or slice.

Heat oil in a frying pan, add the curry leaves, then the okra and spices – mix thoroughly.

Lower heat, cover pan and allow to cook for about 10 minutes-stirring continuously (do not add water).

Serve with rotis and some yoghurt.


Note:

Okra omits a sticky substance when it comes into contact with water — therefore always wash and dry thoroughly before chopping.

Avoid adding water to the cooking process; rather cover the utensil for a few minutes when cooking.
