OKRA IS ALSO KNOWN AS LADYFINGER
This is a different way of making OKRA AND POTAOTES… I will also post the regular recipe which is a part of many indian kitchens.
The use of little oil and no spices makes this dish very appropriate for many types of diets.
The potatoes can be omitted totally and it tastes equally amazing. If you cant get the spice “lemon pepper” you can substitute it for lemon juice and black pepper
Okras are tender and need no liquid to cook..they cook in their own steam making this recipe of much nutritional value
1 cup of fresh or frozen and thawed okra, cut
1 cup of potatoes, diced same size as okra
1 cup of chopped onions
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon of NITU DIDI TURMERIC POWDER
1 teaspoon or more of NITU DIDI LEMON PEPPER POWDER
salt to taste
chilli flakes to taste if you want it to be spicy
chopped green chillies to taste
coriander leaves chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil or cooking oil
in a non stick wok or frying pan heat the oil and add the grated ginger and sizzle for a few moments. Then add the chopped onions and salt, cook covered for 1 minute and then add the diced potatoes. Cover and cook on low temperature stirring ocasionally. When the potatoes are half done (you can test them by poking a piece with a fork) add the okra. I say add the okra now coz okra needs less cooking time. Cook covered till okra is done but not mushy. sprinkle liberally with lemon pepper spice, turmeric and plently coriander leaves and chopped green chillies.
As you can see this is a light, low calorie and simple recipe. IT TASTES AWESOME
