They were really good to eat with a little ketchup. For the other half, you can add cumin and garam masala for an Indian-inspired flavor, or eat it with tamarind chutney and also really enjoyed the combination.
Choose small okra (2 to 3 inches in length, otherwise it will be tough), deep green, solid, and blemish-free.
