Okra Fry

Calling all okra lovers to try this dish! I didn’t want to take away from the natural flavor of okra so this is minimally seasoned with spices. Okra has prominent levels of Vitamin A, B, and C as well as some zinc and calcium. This makes it an ideal vegetable for pregnant women to consume. Pregnant or not, you will see some wonderful health benefits from consuming this vegetable along with a tasty dish 🙂

  • Cook time – 20 minutes


  • Okra (Cut into 1/2 inch pieces) – 500 g
