Spicy Okra Recipe

(serves 4-6)

400g okra, wiped clean, topped and tailed
4 tablespoons gram flour
1 teaspoon chaat masala
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon dried mango powder
vegetable oil for frying


1. Slice the okra pieces lengthwise into quarters then toss them in the gram flour.

2. Heat the vegetable oil to a moderate high heat in a saucepan. Add half or all of the okra depending on the size of your pan. Fry the okra for around 5-8 minutes, giving them an occasional stir.

3. Once the okra becomes crispy and starts to turn a golden brown colour take them out of the pan and place them on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain some of the vegetable oil off.

4. Tip the okra into a large bowl with the chaat masala, salt, chilli and dried mango powder and toss well. Serve immediately whilst still hot.
