    I make somthing similar and call it bhindi bhaji (which means okra curry). I add tumeric and cumin (a little whole and some ground) and some garlic. I use very little water to cook the okra and a dash of lemon juice to assist with removing the stickyness (add just before okra is cooked). YUM - 8/29/08

  • I love okra and this is excellent. I often use a 16 ounce bag of frozen whole okra, some bell pepper slices and banana pepper rings. First I saute onions; add tomatoes and peppers; put okra on top. Add a little water if dry, cover and simmer until okra is tender but still bright green-no slime. - 2/12/13

  • A little on the spicy side for me & I'm from New Orleans. Next time I'll make plain old Succocutash, like my grandmother (a N.O. native) used to make. - 9/22/08

  • I can't wait to try this! I'll get all of the healthful benefits of it to as my hubby doesn't like okra. I am from Tennessee originally so I come from the south/country and I love tomatoes and okra but this is the first recipe I ever come across! I WILL try it soon! - 8/29/08

  • Instead of the boullion cube I add at least 2 cloves of chopped garlic. No sodium and I'm a garlic lover...MJ - 8/29/08

  • i make this using frozen okra, and i let them sit in boiling water for a few minutes so they are partially cooked before using the frying pan the combine all the ingredients. (i like the tomatoes crunchy, so i put them in after i turn the stove off, and cover for about a minute) - 8/29/08
