"This is okra in coconut milk curry. Very simple to make and great with rice and naan for a complete meal. A spicy and very creamy vegan curry that will even please non-vegans. If you like more spice, use more peppers or other spices to your liking."

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet; cook and stir the bell pepper in the hot oil until softened slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir the jalapeno peppers, ginger, garlic, and bay leaves into the bell pepper; cook until fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with the coriander, red pepper, turmeric, cumin seeds, cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon; cook and stir another 2 minutes. Add the tomato slices and raisins to the mixture; continue cooking 3 more minutes. Mix the okra thoroughly into the mixture to coat with the spices.
  2. Stir the coconut milk and water together in a small bowl; pour into the mixture. Cover the skillet and cook covered until the okra is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add water if needed to keep moist. Season with salt. Serve warm.

I used only 1T oil, then I added onions and some more okra to the recipe. I used ground coconut and water instead of coconut milk. This made a wonderful meal!

Used chicken instead of okra and added brown sugar to this. Brown sugar helped the dish a lot.

Perfection! Unique and delicious. I modify nearly every recipe, but I found this one perfect as written. YUM :)

Really good. I make this recipe a lot, and I've found that to keep it creamy like it is shown in one of the photos, I wait to add the coconut milk until the okra has finished cooking, and just ...

came out delicious the first time. I love the balance the raisins bring to the pepper and spices.

Wow, this was excellent! I doubled the recipe and used lite coconut milk. I skipped the tomato, cardamom, red pepper and jalapenos, simply b/c I did not have them on hand. The flavor was stil...

This was an amazingly flavorful recipe and a creative way to use okra. Didn’t have cardamom or bay leaves but it still tasted beautiful without it. Next time I make this, I will be leaving the g...
