Okra stir-fry-2

This is a simple yet delicious recipe of the stir fry that my friend Swati Sule shared with me. It goes well with Chapati or with Dal rice. It’s the addition of a pinch of sugar that gives the stir fry it’s unique taste.


250 gms of Okra/ Bhindi

A large pinch of turmeric


1/2 tsp of sugar

For the tempering:

2 tbsps oil

1 tsp Jeera/ cumin seeds

1/2 a tsp of mustard seeds

3 spicy green chillies slit


Wash and snip both the ends of the okra. Chop them fine as shown in the picture. Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard and after it crackles drop in the cumin seeds. Immediately add the slit green chillies and toss. Drop in the chopped okra, turmeric, sugar and salt. Mix gently and keep tossing on a gentle flame till done. Serve hot.
