Okra (ladies fingers) curry

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
225 grams Okra (Ladies Fingers)
3 tablespoons Oil
\N \N Grated flesh of 1/2 coconut
½ teaspoon Chilli powder
½ teaspoon Turmeric
½ teaspoon Ground cummin
225 grams Yoghurt
½ teaspoon Mustard seeds
1 \N Red chilli, cut into pieces
1 \N Sprig coriander leaves
\N \N 4-6 curry leaves
\N \N Salt

Wash the okra and dry them on absorbent kitchen paper. Cut into 2.5cm lengths.

Heat 1 Tbs oil and fry the okra for about 2 minutes, turning gently, until all the oil has been absorbed. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Blend the coconut with the chilli powder, turmeric and cumin in a blender, adding 1 Tbs water to make a smooth paste. Mix this into the yoghurt.

Heat the remaining oil and when hot, add the mustard seeds and red chilli. Let them sizzle for a few seconds, until all the seeds have popped, then add the okra.

Turn the heat down and add the yoghurt mix. Cook gently for 2-3 minutes, stirring to prevent the yoghurt from separating, until hot through. Add the coriander and curry leaves, and salt to taste.
