Okra Fry

Fry ginger and onion briefly until the ginger turns brown. Add onion slices and fry on medium heat for about 3 minute(s) or till the onions are just about transluscent (do not brown).

Add turmeric powder and mix well. Mix in finely sliced okra stirring gently and briefly on high heat until well coated with the oil and looks glossy. Mix in salt, cover and cook on low for about 12 minutes or till the okra is tender and well cooked. Saut’ briefly and gently till the okra is well fried and starts sticking to the bottom of the pan.

It is very essential that the okra is completely dry before slicing. Water droplets tend to make it mushy.
