Sautéed Okra with
Caramelized Onion

INGREDIENTS
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

STEP 1
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.  

STEP 2
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.

STEP 3
Add the okra and sprinkle with the mango powder. Cook together till the okra is bright green.

STEP 4
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.
