Ingredients225 g Okra (Ladies Fingers)
3 T Oil
Grated flesh of 1/2 coconut
1/2 t Chilli powder
1/2 t Turmeric
1/2 t Ground cummin
225 g Yoghurt
1/2 t Mustard seeds
1 Red chilli, cut into pieces
1 Sprig coriander leaves
4-6 curry leaves
InstructionsWash 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.
