Mom’s Okra and Onion Stir-Fry (Pyaaz Waali Bhindi)

Prep: 10 minutes | Active: 15 minutes | Inactive: 45 minutes |Serves 4

Either you like okra or you hate it. This recipe might help you like it. Okra is cooked with onions until crisp and no hint of slime remains. This is another one of Mom’s simple recipes. She cooks the okra, spiced with just cayenne and turmeric, on low heat for an hour so it is perfectly crisped. Serve this easy and delicious stir-fry with any of the spicy dals or spicy curries. (Shown in thali photo, page 19, at top right.)
