Category: Indian, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 225 g Okra (Ladies Fingers)
  • 3 tb Oil
  • Grated flesh of 1/2 coconut
  • 1/2 ts Chilli powder
  • 1/2 ts Turmeric
  • 1/2 ts Ground cummin
  • 225 g Yoghurt
  • 1/2 ts Mustard seeds
  • 1 Red chilli, cut into pieces
  • 1 Sprig coriander leaves
  • 4-6 curry leaves
  • Salt


Wash the okra and dry them on absorbent kitchen paper. Cut into 2.5cm

Heat 1 Tbs oil and fry the okra for about 2 minutes, turning gently, until
all the oil has been absorbed. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Blend the coconut with the chilli powder, turmeric and cumin in a blender,
adding 1 Tbs water to make a smooth paste. Mix this into the yoghurt.

Heat the remaining oil and when hot, add the mustard seeds and red chilli.
Let them sizzle for a few seconds, until all the seeds have popped, then
add the okra.

Turn the heat down and add the yoghurt mix. Cook gently for 2-3 minutes,
stirring to prevent the yoghurt from separating, until hot through. Add the
coriander and curry leaves, and salt to taste.
