Okra Fry

Recipe by  

"A wonderfully spicy dish if you can find the spices necessary in your grocery store. Asafoetida is available in Indian food stores and some grocery stores. It has garlicky smell and should be used sparingly. Best served with rice or bread."

This is a really good, quick, and easy recipe. That much chili powder is NOT for the faint of heart, though...I cut it back to 1/2 tsp, and it was still quite spicy. The asafoetida powder (which you can find in an Indian grocery) really makes a difference. A little pinch goes a long way. Also, if you use frozen okra, they do leave the tips in, so make sure to take them out first!

My husband made this and didn't change a thing -- it was perfect! Not gummy at all. Tasted almost exactly like the okra dish at our favorite Indian restaurant in Irvine, the Clay Oven.

I used 2 cloves garlic instead of the asafoetida powder. I also used vegetable spray instead of the oil. This great tasting combination makes me want to make more soon!

I love fried okra !! the only thing I canged, was I used corn oil instead of olive oil, left out the mustard seeds, & put the sliced okra into some breading before I fried it!!
