Wash the okra, top and tail, and cut into approximately 1/4" pieces (or

and fenugreek seeds in mustard oil for 2-3 minutes (cover the pan or the
mustard seeds will leap out all over the kitchen!). Add garlic, onion and
ginger; fry gently for about 10 minutes more. Make the ground spices into a
paste with a little water, add to the pan and fry for a further 10 minutes.

until the okra is tender but not sloppy (about 15-20 minutes). Serves 3-4
