Last weekend I was given a bunch – actually about a pound of  Okra.











I’m not very familiar with this vegetable having only had it in gumbo so I had to look up a recipe.

I thought this might be good.

Curried Okra with Onions

1 pound okra, washed, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, quartered and sliced
dash cayenne pepper, or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon mild curry powder, or to taste
salt and pepper, to taste

Here we have the ingredients – simple – just the way I like it.










Clean up the Okra and cut into 1/2″ pieces.










Heat the oil in a heavy pan – I used a wok. Add okra and fry for 10 minutes, stirring often until it is lightly browned.










Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until the onions are tender. The recipe says this serves six. More like three.










I served it over some leftover fried rice with a nice small just picked tomato.










If I were to make it again I’d add garlic and ginger to the heated oil before adding the okra.

Super fast, just a few ingredients, and tasty! My kind of meal.

Eat well and keep eating.
