Recipe by Felicia Manocchio
"This is a great recipe for making during the month of Ramadan. It is an Egyptian dish. Bake in a clay baking dish if available. If not, any deep baking dish is fine. Best served with rice."

onion, finely chopped
boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) can
water, or as needed to cover
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen okra, thawed
I fried the okra slightly first, to stop the end product from being slimy or stringy. No need for olive oil. I also added uncrushed black pepper. Near the end of cooking the bamia I add lots of lemon juice and chopped green coriander.
