Okra Curry- the Martha Stewart Way and the Jennifer Kumar Way

This post is just for fun!! There is a video below. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!


olive oil
1 red onion cut in long pieces

1 tbspn yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seed
1/2 tsp coriander powder

1 lb whole okras not cut

long cut tomato


See, or at least, hear, her make this recipe, below in a really raw video.

The method is so different from the Indian way. No popping of seeds

This is how I would make it

3 tsp oil
pinch black mustard seeds.

heat oil and put in the mustard. When it pops add in-
10 okras cut into slices, pinch salt, red chilies (2 broken), 5 or so curry leaves, urad dhal uncooked (a pinch), 1 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp coriander powder.

Stir fry until it's golden brown...

Hopefully the stickiness would go off on it's own.

Any remedies for ridding of the stickiness?


I eat it as a side dish with sambar rice or with rotis.

Sorry about the quality, I recorded with my Iphone, purposefully. I wanted you to hear what she has to say, even if you can't really see it very well!
