Baby Okra & Egg Stew


I don't know whether baby okra is a brand name as such. But I know that these tender ones taste really good. Okra or ladies finger tastes good in a garam masala base and I wanted to try it with eggs. This dish tastes good with bread or chapathi. A spicy version* with the addition of coriander powder can be had with rice also. If you dont find tiny baby okra, tender okra may be used. I like to cut the egg into two in curries because the slightly melted yolk gives a nice taste to the gravy.

the recipe

Baby Okra - 15-20 nos
Eggs, boiled - 4-6

Oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1
Ginger juliennes - 1 tbsp
Garlic, chopped - 1 tbsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
Milk - 3/4 cup
Salt to taste

the method

Wash the okra and slit it on one side so that the veg remains as whole.  Prepare some salt solution and rub it inside the okra.

Heat oil in a pan and place the onion. When translucent add the ginger, garlic and okra. Stir it in low flame till the okra has become almost soft. Add the turmeric, chilly, pepper and garam masala. Stir for a minute and add the lemon juice. Add salt. Turn to low flame and place the eggs and add milk.Stir well. Adjust salt and pepper. When the milk boils turn off heat. Serve with bread or chapathi.

* for a spicy taste add 1/2  tsp coriander powder
