Spicy okra with 7 grains


Spicy, aromatic and delicious. 🙂

2 cups okra
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
2 teaspoon tamarind water
1 can peeled tomatoes
salt to taste
parsley or cilantro
1 tablespoon canola or coconut oil
3 tablespoon water

Saute the okra slightly in oil, close the pan with a lid and allow it to cook for 5 min.Add the spices, the tamarind and the can of tomatoes, stir and cook under low flame until the okra gets soft but not mushy. I like mine with some “crunchiness”.

Serve it hot, garnished with chopped parsley or cilantro.

  1. Is tamarind water the same as tamarind juice?

    • tamarind water is tamarind paste diluted in a bit of water – my guess is that you can replace it with tamarind juice if the juice is “really” concentrated. In this case you should use it undiluted, straight from the bottle.
