A delicious accompaniment to any dish, this can also be served on a bed of strained yogurt, which gives an excellent contrast in flavour.

Preparation Method :

  • Wash the okra and dry on kitchen paper. Carefully trim off the tops without making a hole.
  • Using a sharp knife, make a slit lengthways in the centre of each okra but do not cut all the way through.
  • In a bowl, mix the mango powder, ginger, cumin, chilli if using, turmeric, and salt with a few drops of oil. Leave the mixture to rest for 1 - 2 hours.
  • Using your fingers, part the slit of each okra carefully and fill each with as much of the spice filling as possible.
  • Put all the okra into the plastic bag with the corn flour and shake the bag carefully to coat the okra evenly.
  • Fill a frying pan with enough oil to sit 2.5 cm / 1 inch deep, heat it.
  • Fry the okra in small batches for about 5 - 8 minutes, or until they are brown and slightly crisp. Serve hot.
