Indian style spicy tangy stuffed okras
In a skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat. Into the hot oil, add the carom seeds and let them heat until they pop. Then add onions and saute them until translucent. Turn off the gas and add a dash of salt, red chili powder, turmeric, coriander powder and dry mango powder. Mix it all nicely. Taste and adjust seasoning. Set it aside and allow it to come to room temperature.
Wash the okra well and make a slit down each lengthwise making sure not to cut through the bottom part. Once the spice mix comes to room temperature, stuff the mix in the okra one at a time. Set them aside.
Heat remaining oil in a skillet on low heat. Once oil is hot arrange the stuffed okra one by one in the skillet, keeping the stuffed side facing up. Sprinkle with some salt and coriander powder over the top if desired. Put the lid on and let them cook slowly on low heat. Check it after 15-20 minutes to make sure they are not sticking. If you feel okra sticking to the skillet add a little more oil. After about 20-25 minutes, use tongs and flip them one at a time. Cover and cook for another 20-30 minutes on low.
Serve hot with fresh Indian flatbread, naan or bread.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
