We love recipes that stretch our culinary horizons. We now know what asafetida powder is, and so will you if you give this okra fry a whirl. It 's hot, spicy and oh so good.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 pound fresh okra
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pinch asafoetida powder
- 1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
Rinse okra and cut head and tail end off of each okra. Chop okra into small pieces.
In a small mixing bowl combine okra, salt, chili powder and asafoetida powder.
In a medium size skillet over medium-high flame heat oil, add black mustard seeds. Cook until they pop. Add okra mixture to skillet and cover. Let fry 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
