RM 2: Tangy Okra Stew

Today's dish is one of my all time favorite side dishes and I end up making this atleast once a week. I love the tangy taste of tamarind and the addition of Okra which gives it a distinct taste which is very hard to resist..:)

Tangy Okra Stew


1 cup cut Okra pieces
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1/2 Tomato, finely chopped
1 tsp Tomato paste
1 tbsp Tamarind pulp
Salt to taste
1/8th tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Canola Oil

For Tampering:

1 tsp Urad dal
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds
a pinch of Hing


Step 1: Heat oil in a wok, add the ingredients listed for 'tampering'. Add in onion & tomatoes. Saute for couple of minutes.

Step 2: Add tomato paste and tamarind pulp to the onion-tomato mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt, turmeric and chilli powder. Stir the contents well.

Step 3: Finally mix in the okra pieces and cook for 3-4 minutes on medium-low flame. Then add about 2 cups of water and adjust the seasonings if needed. Cook for 5-6 minutes.

This dish tastes yum with a some rice and ghee! Enjoi..:)
