Okra/Ladies Fingers: South Indian Style



Great and tasty recipe, I learned from my Indian family

Ingredients: okra (any desired amount), 2 green chili's, 1/2 cup frozen or fresh coconut, salt, few curry leaves (can get in Indian stores), 1/2 red onion diced, little urad dahl, pinch of chili powder or masala powder

1. Saute the onion in canola oil, with curry leaves, urad dal, salt and green chili and masala powder
2. add Okra and stir fry for about 20 min until the gooey texture goes away, near the end add the coconut

and its done, it really tastes great, and is a wonderful vegetable side with almost anything. Okra is a great source of fiber, vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin A and Vitamin K, it is also a good source of protein. We are blessed here in North Carolina as its grown a lot locally, I put my first plant in yesterday!!

Enjoy
