"A tasty Afghan dish with okra. My mom always makes this dish for us. You can also use fresh tomatoes rather than the tomato paste." — luckycharm416

onion, thinly sliced
okra, sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
salt and black pepper to taste
This gets 5 stars for what it is...simple and different. It is actually quite mild, which surprised me, but it could be the age of my spice. I had last minute surprise guest come who said she would/could not eat okra unless it was fried due to the slime factor. Well, on seeing this, she said...let me try a "No, thank you portion." So, I fixed up a tiny serving, which (believe me... she would have had no problem consuming only a nibble of), and she ate the whole portion, noting that it was not slimy, even though it was definitely not fried. So, another star added for reducing the slime factor on boiled okra. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I think it would be good combined with some shredded chicken for a pita filling.
Good ingredients, but there's no 'wow' factor to the taste. Easy to prepare.
This was a great way to cook the okra! very tasty and less slimy.
A nice simple dish. I served it over millet, and used fresh tomato & tomato paste.
This tasted really great. Took it to a family dinner and it was a hit. It was really good to eat with rice.
