Tasty Okra Curry

This recipe for Tasty and Beautiful Okra Curry should change all your preconceived notions about “The Goopy Okra” from a frozen Okra package. It is all in the wrist, i.e., how often you stir the dish ! Seriously, stir-frying on high or medium-high heat contributes to drying up the sticky substance. Mildly spiced and stir-fried, it becomes a tasty dish, not to mention that it is very healthy too.

Of course, if you get fresh Okra, it will be much easier to cook because there will be much less sticky substance. In addition, it will taste better too. However, if fresh Okra is not easy to get, then frozen Okra will do just fine.
