Okra and caramelised onions are simmered in a turmeric-tomato sauce in this side dish from Afghanistan.
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. - 28 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Good ingredients, but there's no 'wow' factor to the taste. Easy to prepare. - 01 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
