    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan; cook and stir the pepper in the hot oil until softened slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir the Scotch bonnets, ginger, garlic and bay leaves into the pepper; cook until fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with the coriander, cayenne, 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 frying pan and cook covered until the okra is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add water if needed to keep moist. Season with salt. Serve warm.

    Delicious! We doubled the recipe because I had a lot of okra, and used chopped cranberries instead of raisins.  -  09 Jan 2016

    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!  -  12 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
