  • OK if you like bland food - very disappointed in results, which I followed exactly. To salvage what I made, I used 1 T oo in wok, then added 2 t each coriander powder & cumin seeds, 1 T ginger paste & 1 med onion chopped - saute until onions became sof & then added bland okra mix - very good - 10/29/09
