About the Recipe

Okra is mostly associated with Indian cooking but it's used in traditional Japanese cuisine as well. Maybe it's because of all the good things in it - trace elements, Vitamin C, antioxidants etc. So maybe you should eat a little more of it? Pan fried with a little curry perhaps? Tempted? If you are, this recipe makes enough for 2 side dishes as part of a larger meal.
