    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

    Very Good
    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
