Top Rated Okra Recipes

Bendanso Stu (Okra Stew)
Okra (aka "lady’s finger") is stewed gently in coconut milk and basic spices — resulting in a curry that is delicately flavored. Do note that the flavor of coconut milk is very dominant here. This curry teams up very well with fried fish and white rice. I am sure it will taste great with brown (or red) boiled rice as well.

Bhindi Masala Appetizers
If you didn't grow up cooking Indian food, then it's sometimes a daunting cuisine to take on. But after living in India for a year I discovered that there are basics even non-Indians can master. The first secret is in cooking for a long time — Indian cuisine is all about developing the flavors and if you want a quick fix, then you shouldn't even start. The second secret is proper spices — don't take out ground cumin that's been sitting in your cabinet for months and don't buy a garam masala from a generic brand. Buy fresh cumin seeds, fresh coriander, and find a real spice market for an original garam masala blend. This okra appetizer is a primer for anyone who wants to try cooking Indian food but is a bit hesitant. There's nothing complicated; you just have to leave time for simmering. Take it from a white girl who loves Indian food: You can do it! Click here to see 5 Naan-Inspired Recipes.
