This is my little sister Jes’s signature recipe, and she makes it finger licking good. Mom always insists that only she make it. Here is her recipe.
What you need: Makes 6 wraps or serves 4 as a side dish
2 cups fresh okra, washed, wiped dry and diced
1 cup onion cut lengthwise
2 cups tomatoes diced
A sprig of curry leaves, washed and the leaves chopped finely.
A tsp of urad dhal (uddina bele)
½ tsp red chili powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
A pinch of sugar
Salt as needed
1tsp olive oil
Get a skillet nice and hot, add the oil, as it smokes, add in the urad dhal and let it roast to a light brown. Toss the onions roast on high heat for just a minute, as it browns, add in the tomatoes and let them cook until they are soft. Add in the cooked okra.
To this, add all the powders, roast for 2 minutes on high heat, then on low for the next 7-10 minutes. It is fast and healthy, especially if you love okra. Enjoy!
