Okra Recipes
SPICY INDIAN STUFFED OKRA

This Indian Recipe makes a deliciously spicy Okra dish which is yet another way to enjoy this vastly underrated vegetable

Ingredients:

1 lb [ 450g ] okra
oil for shallow fry
2 tsp red chili powder
1tsp cumin powder
1½ tsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
2 tsp lemon juice

Making Stuffed Okra

Cut off both ends of the okra.

Using a sharp knife cut a small pouch in the long side of each okra. Do this carefully so that the slit does not go right through the okra and both the ends are closed, otherwise the stuffing will fall out.

Make the stuffing by mixing all the chilli, cumin, coriander and turmeric with the lemon juice.

This should form a thick paste, if the stuffing is runny it will come out of the okra during cooking

Carefully stuff the paste inside the pouch of each okra.

Heat the oil in a frying-pan and shallow fry the stuffed okras on medium heat.

Fry a few stuffed okras at a time turning them occasionally until they are crisp on all sides.

Your spicy stuffed okra dish should be served hot with plain rice.

This recipe is not from the Africhef African Recipes Cookbook, which contains a number of traditional African Okra recipes.
