A versatile veggie with lots of health benefits.


Okras – long ones about 15( sliced thinly and slant)

Heat a pan and add some oil and then then add in the turmeric , cumin powder and sauté for about a minute.

Now rub in some salt and the lemon juice to the okras and keep aside.

Add the sliced tomatoes and sauté for about 3 minutes until the tomatoes are cooked.

Now add in the okras to which salt and lemon juice has been added.
