Vegetarian Curry Okra Recipe.

Here’s a quick and tasty way to prepare okra or ochro as it’s known in the Caribbean. First we’ll create an aromatic base with diced onion, garlic and curry powder, then we’ll toss in the okra and give it a quick stir-fry. In the Caribbean okra is a very popular vegetable, so we’re always looking for ways to cook and enhance it’s appeal. This curry okra (okra curry for my Guyanese friends) will be a hit on your dinner table.

You’ll Need

1 lb okra
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch fresh ground black pepper
1 medium onion diced
3 cloves garlic
2 birds eye pepper (or 1/4 scotch bonnet)
1 pimento pepper (akak seasoning pepper)
2 tablespoon veg oil
1 tablespoon madras curry powder

If your okra is slime , do not worry throw in s pan and add amchur powder (salty dry mango powder) it will take care of slime.  A must for okra or bhindi sabji and you do not lose slime taste
