Okra sabji

I love this okra sabji my mum used to make often when I was young . It is easy and delicious way of making okra. I would suggest that okra be washed and thoroughly dried with a dish cloth and left for about an hour so that it dries completely before u cut it otherwise it tends to get slimy .Β 



  • 500g okra
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/2 tbsp corriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
  • 4 tsp oil
  • salt to taste


  1. Cut head and tail of ladyfingers. Cut each into two or three pieces depending on the size.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and saute till pinkish in colour.
  3. Add tumeric , red chili powder, and corriander powder. Saute for a minute.
  4. Add tomtoes and fry for 3-4 mins till they soften.
  5. Add okra Β and then salt. Cook uncovered for 8-9 mins till okra is tender.
