Stir-fried Okra

Servings: 2-4

  • Okra - 1 lb (500 gms), washed & cut into bite size pieces
  • Onion - 1 med, thinly sliced
  • Dried red chili peppers - 3- 4, torn in half
  • Salt- to taste
  • 1. Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a non-stick wok.
  • 2. Add the chili peppers, saute to infuse the oil. Add the onions and salt. Saute till the onions are translucent.
  • 3. Add the cut okra, saute on high heat for 6-9 min stirring continuously, or till cooked through. Saute until your preference of crispness. I personally do not like the slimy texture so I fry it for extra long. Make sure not to overcook though, as then the colour will not stay as green.
  • 4. Serve with plain white rice, or any side of your choice.
