Tomato and Okra Curry

Recipe by Mish Delish

Nutrient-packed okra stars in this delicious, simple and a-little-bit-spicy Tomato Curry by A-teamer, Mish Delish.

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 500g okra, washed well and sliced
  • 3 brown onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large pinch salt
  • 2 small green chillies, finely chopped (deseed them if you want to reduce the heat)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ cup water
  1. Heat the oil in a deep frypan and cook okra on a medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove the okra from the pan and add the onions, cook for 5 minutes or until translucent and starting to caramelise.
  3. Add the tomatoes to the onions and continue to cook for a few minutes. Add the salt, spices and green chillies, stir and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Return the okra back to the pan with the water and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
  5. Check seasoning and serve.

*This dish is best served as part of a shared meal with other curries such as dal (pictured).
