Cooking time (approx.): 15 minutes
Style: Indian Vegetarian
2 tablespoons oil
4 big green chillies slit or as per taste
1 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
4 medium onions finely sliced
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
500 grams okra washed, pat dried and sliced into fine strips lengthwise or cut into rings
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a heavy-based pan and fry the green chillies and ginger briefly till the ginger turns brown. Add the onion slices and fry on medium heat for about 3 minute(s) or till the onions are just about translucent (do not brown).
Add the turmeric powder and mix well. Mix in the finely sliced okra stirring gently and briefly on high heat till it is well coated with the oil and looks glossy. Mix in the salt, cover and cook on low for about 12 minutes or till the okra is tender and well cooked. Sauté briefly and gently till the okra is well fried and starts sticking to the bottom of the pan.
