My Indian Okra Recipe

The staple ingredients in Indian cooking are:
Onion -- 1/4 of a large onion chopped
Garlic -- 1 large minced garlic
Ginger -- 1 inch peeled and minced 
Cardamom -- Indian variety 2 whole seeds
Fenegreek -- about 1/2 tsp
Tomato -- 1/2 chopped tomato

I sautéed the first 4 ingredients in a small frying pan in grape sees oil in medium heat. When it turned golden before browning, I added about 1/2 lb of whole fresh okra. Season with about 3/4 tsp salt.  Add about 1 TB of garam masala or Butter Chicken spice.

Cover the pan and stir from time to time. The mixture will create it's own sweat. Do not add water.

When done, serve.

Enjoy your dish!
