This one is a bit of a hat tip to my childhood. I ate a lot of okra growing up in Bombay.
Now, granted okra isn’t cheap around here, but I still get quite excited when I see it fresh and make sure to get some because it’s so rare. This meal just isn’t the same with frozen okra.
The trick to making this snack or lunch high in protein is to combine it with yogurt.
When the mustard seeds crackle, add 3 – 4 cups chopped okra, salt to taste and continue to cook.
Many people refuse to eat okra because they complain of the texture being slimy. If this bothers you, can add about a tablespoon of dried mango powder to it at this point. (Sorry, I guess I’m sending you to the Indian grocery store again. Dried mango powder is also found at Amazon.)
Saute for a few more minutes and it’s done! This makes enough for 2 servings. Serve with 1/2 cup yogurt.
