JAM CRUISE #CURRYjam RECIPES
4 tbsp Oil (Canola or Vegetable)
2 cups diced yellow onion
1 lb Baby Okra cut lengthwise
1 ½ tsp Mango Powder
1 ½ tsp Coriander, ground
1 tsp Cumin, ground
1 ½ tsp Fennel Seed, ground
1 ½ tsp Turmeric
1 ½ to 2 tsp salt, to taste
3/4 tsp to 1 tsp of cayenne, to taste
Chopped cilantro leaves
Cut the okra on both ends and cut into ½” pieces. You can also split them down the middle. Do not use thick pieces of okra with big seeds. Baby okra works the best for this recipe.
Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pan and sauté the onions until caramelized and golden brown. Usually takes 8-10 minutes on medium heat.
Add the okra and sprinkle with the mango powder. Cook together till the okra is bright green.
Add the other dry ingredients and cook on low heat till the okra is tender. It will will turn a darker color and will shrink in size. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with naan or rice.
