Whenever I am pressed for time and want to make a quick side dish to serve with phulka/rice, I turn to this recipe. Its super simple and fast. I used frozen okra (from Indian Grocery Store) 10.5 oz packets (2). If you have time on your hands, you can use fresh bhendi too! Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add tempering ingredients (mustard seeds -1/2 tsp, asofoetida - a pinch, cumin - 1/2 tsp), Turmeric powder (1/2 tsp), Red chilli powder (1 tsp) and a little garam masala (optional). Add 1 tsp sugar and salt as per taste and Keep stirring uncovered, for 10-15 mins till okra is soft and cooked. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
