Recipe by Food Connection

1-1 1/2 lbs. okra, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small yellow onion, sliced
3-4 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon red chili powder or crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon garam masala 
sea salt to taste
one small tomato, chopped
small handful of finely chopped cilantro leaves for garnish

Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium, add the onion and fry until they are lightly golden brown.  Remove the fried onions and set aside.  Add the okras in the same pan, fry them until the sliminess is gone and start to brown lightly (do not let it burn).  Reduce heat to low, add red chili powder or crushed red pepper, turmeric, coriander powder, cumin seeds, garam masala, and sea salt to the okras and cook for 5-8 minutes. Add tomato and fried onions to the cooked okras, and increase the heat to medium-low, stir well and cook or additional 5 minutes to allow all the flavors blend well.  Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.  Serve with naans (flatbreads) or rice. This recipe serves 2-4 persons.  Enjoy!
