Okra is one of the most popular vegetables, which is presented in many forms. Today, I’ve brought an aromatic sensational dish named OKRA CURRY.

You must be thinking about onions and garlic but no, today’s recipe is uniquely made with tomatoes only! This recipe is especially for those who prefer less oil and fewer ingredients with no mess recipes. As promised, I present you another mind blowing, just to your instant wish, Okra cooked in tomato, aka OKRA CURRY.

Garlic and onions are a big no in my family, and I have always tried dishes in a different style. Onion Okra curry proves to be a delicious recipe but as already mentioned, onion is not my dish type. I tried this recipe when I wasn’t able to decide what to give my children in lunch and didn’t want to feed them any fried food. I cooked this and my children were absolutely in love with this.

My youngest one is such a big Okra lover that she can have okras in every meal of the day. She likes okra way too much and this form is her favorite amongst all. It is very normal for my children to demand me to make new and tasty dishes for them in regular meals, and this is the most frequent dish in our regular menu chart.
