Okra Fry ~ Goan style.


Okra fry, a simple and tasty side dish which will accompany any type of main course.

Ingredients:

1 lb  / 16 oz Okra, washed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion medium, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Ginger, minced
1/4 teaspoon Turmeric powder
2 Green chillies, chopped
1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
Salt to taste


Method:

1. Clean the okra. Cut off the tops and discard. Chop into 1" pieces
2. Heat the oil in a pan; sauté the onion for 2 minutes till transparent. Add the garlic and ginger; sauté for 30 seconds
3. Add the okra, turmeric powder, green chillies, lemon juice, and salt; mix well. Cook covered on low heat till the okra is tender
4. Cook uncovered to dry up any liquid. Adjust seasoning.


Serve hot with Rice, kadhi and rotis.

The source of this recipe was from Enchanting Goa.com, the changes I made were that I added lemon juice instead of vinegar and cooked the dish in olive oil rather than vegetable oil as suggested in the actual recipe.
